Host gets political
I don’t listen to for political opinions. I have my own and don’t require his. Stop it.
Why always UFOs?
It seems like 90% of the podcasts are about UFOs. Can you vary the subject matter?
Boring unless you like commercials!
I gave this a try, and couldn’t get through my 1st episode. The host has zero charisma, and neither did his guests. I had a hard time keep their voices separate from each other. The show is also heavily laced with ads. At one point there was a 5 minute+ ad break followed by 8 minutes of show content then almost another 6 minutes of ads. I gave up after an hour. Definitely not the gold standard of paranormal radio. Don’t listen while driving you might fall asleep.
