Well researched contents. Annoying Hosts!

I truly enjoyed how well researched the content of their episodes are! They go way past the Wikipedia page, unlike other podcasters on this similar topic. And for the most part, they tell the story from an unbiased perspective then give their opinion or thoughts at the very end of episode. My issue is the arrogance in which the 2 host conducts themselves. As the series goes on, and the episodes getting newer and newer, the podcasters take on this sense of excellent. Borderline narcissist. They appear as though their opinions are the only accurate opinion. Begging their listeners to patronize their show. Which, I get, a lot of podcasters want this to be their sole profession, but the one episode they advertised their information for a show or event, stating their podcast code for access. The following show they were berating listeners for not showing their support by using the code. Rather uncomfortable.... I enjoy the content and how well it is delivered. So I will keep listening.

Patronize

I used to be a big fan of the podcast but they have become patronizing. “If you don’t agree with our take you are a moron.” Is the vibe they give off. It is unfortunate. Their older stuff they left it up to you to take a side and I enjoyed that. I even went out of my way to meet them. They were super nice. But the past year or so, they have gone from “You make the call” to “You’re an idiot if you don’t agree with us.” Justin, there can be a difference of opinion. Take a deep breath, get out of the fetal position, and relax.

Would give 5 stars but cadence in hosts voice is so annoying

It get’s even worse in commercials. The locution in the Chase ad gets on my nerves so much it makes me just want to turn the episode off.
