I love this podcast, BUT…

Honestly, I apologize for the 1 star rating, but it must be done. Josh and Skye are fantastic and have a wonderful comic dynamic with Josh playing the straight man of the duo. I have listened to every episode and love their reviews even when I disagree.

With that said.
Jason is simply awful. I am sorry. I know he is a young man and this is not personal attack, but he does not have the discipline or character for an on-air personality. He continuously laughs at his own jokes which is grating and unnerving. His opinions are nonsensical at least 85% of the time.

Jason is probably a wonderful producer. Perhaps he can join the conversation occasionally like producers occasionally do on other podcasts, but PLEASE, PLEASE , PLEASE remove him from the on-air role.

You have officially lost one listener after the Bullet Train episode and I imagine you will lose more.
