I'm the Co-Host. This show is 5 stars
Ok, I'm a little biasis because I produce and co-host Patrick's podcast but... I think it's pretty cool that as a TV Gm patrick is willing to step outside the box and host his own show. The show really tries to give an insider perpective into the local tv landscape, and cover pop-culture and politics topics.
I’ve been listening since the beginning and unfortunately can’t stand to listen to an episode anymore. What used to be a podcast that highlighted interesting topics in the local area has devolved into complaining about national politics and uninteresting celebrity gossip. Worst of all has been the last 3-4 months of constant chunks of episodes dedicated to ranting on masks. There also used to be a nice balance between Patrick and Sarah but she’s shifted to Patrick’s side so good debates don’t happen. I think another co-host who can push back on Patrick would be beneficial because right now it feels like a show for Patrick to vent for an hour.
I wish more politicians could have the Paolini perspective
I’ve know this guy a long time. And probably disagree with as much as I agree with. But his views are well thought out and show empathy for the other side even when he disagrees. Our political leaders could learn a lot from Pat. He and Sarah have a nice chemistry. Keep up the good work.
