You keep getting better and better. Awesome guests and interviews. Get some Titans on and your show would be perfect. Keep it up budddy.
I give up. Great in theory and good information. Needs a new host desperately. Someone who isn’t a LOTR fanboy. Someone who can come close to pronouncing words the same as others who speak English. At least use Google to figure out words instead of guessing like a 3 year old. I was looking forward to hearing about the “me-uh-MY” Dolphins and “jack-SON-villa” Jaguars but will simply hope for a new host.
