Please stop pushing a certain climate agenda on us. Thank you.
Drop Matt… then it’d be 5 stars
This show is fantastic when Scott Brady or Ashley or some of the other intriguing guests are talking. I understand the need for color commentary on a show, but Matt is atrocious. He interrupts with irrelevant, pretentious and useless comments distracting from the otherwise very informative content.
