Can’t get enough

I would listen to a new episode everyday if I could.

About two thirds of the podcast was them voicing their political opinions, which I could care less about due to the fact that I subscribed to a Miami Heat BASKETBALL podcast. What made things even worse is their facts were rooted in incorrect facts and opinions about the criminal justice system. Having my masters in CJ I wanted to rip my hair out listening. To top it all off the entire podcast was full of loud yelling, laughing and talking over one another. Not very professional and will never listen again
