ColJJGod ,

Excellent, but maybe too much Zach lol

Not sure if it was always this way, but it does seem like Zach Lowe is usually talking for about 70% of the podcast’s runtime when there’s a guest. And that includes usually a 10 minute monologue to start any subject. Give the guests more time!
This is still about as good as a nba pod gets tho.
