Great show, please stop tapping the table

Love Keith's point of view and diverse guests. But Keith, please stop tapping/pounding the table while you talk. Very distracting while listening with headphones

Boring and bad

Terrible and not interesting

Wide-Ranging and Surprising (in a good way)

I subscribe to The Athletic mostly to read about baseball. And I was listening to another podcast (Starkville)(also wide-ranging at times) and it was over before I was ready to stop listening. I’d never listened to Keith Law before, and he’s discussing—not baseball, but he’s talking with Dr Elizabeth Hinton about her book, “America on Fire: The Untold History of Police Violence and Black Rebellion Since the 1960s.”
I felt like I’d taken a slightly different road home and ended up in a slightly strange and new-to-me part of the world. So, thank you Keith Law and Dr. Hinton. This is a great podcast!
