This is a great podcast

Great pod! One prob!

Zach, I love the pod and the occasional discussion of the wonders of Croatia. But someone has played a cruel joke and convinced you that Brian Scalabrine is a worthwhile guest. His words are neither interesting or informative. Surely there's another living, breathing human being on the planet you could invite to discuss this consequential franchise. When I listen to Brian Scalabrine talk, I think of Michael Rappaport. That is not a compliment. It's the one sour note in what's otherwise a wonderful endeavor. Thank you for doing what you do with such intellect and humor. And thank you for your time.

Stop snapping your fingers into the mic

Annoying habit. Stop. We know what snappy means. Terrible on the ears
