Downhill

I used to think this podcast was really good but the quality has continued to degrade. The last episode with Joe Rogan was terrible. Rogan talking about trappers from the 1800's and now calling himself the modern day equivalent to that; give me a break. These guys have become caricatures of themselves. The content is tired and uncreative; it's come down to Steve constantly interrupting with blowhard non-sequiturs or stupid stories in an effort to capture the pulpit. On the episode with Rogan, I really wanted to hear from the guy with the restaurant but instead it's Steve and Joe just fighting over who can control the microphone. If you are going to listen to this podcast, stick to the older episodes.
