Medhi Hassan

Stephen A. Are you man enough to have on Mehdi Hassan? He’s the best in the business at political debate on the Left. Just don’t try any of that centrist bull you placated the right wing dolt PBD with. You got to bring your A Game or Mehdi will mop the floor!

Great show, but it could be a whole lot better.

Ima big SAS guy. Just like me, he is a west indian man from the east coast and he's quite relatable if you ask me. When he finally got into the podcast realm (outside of repackaged first take episodes) I was ecstatic. I've been listening since before he rebranded.

It's been a bit over two years and... lets just say Stephen a has mote potential.

Here's my suggestions:

- Keep the cold opens cold.. and get straight into the teased topics after the intro.

- quit gloating about your subscribers at the beginning of every show.. if anything do that corny ish at the end.

- Make more separate episodes for the full-length interviews unrelated to the realm of sports. Broadcast them in full in the live youtube broadcast/taping but keep them out the main podcast episodes because they mess up the flow. I mean you can keep 4-5 mins of them to at least introduce whatever's being discussed to the listener for them to indulge in at their own discretion.

- Quit being in a rush to "get up on outa here". Just host your podcast and let it end when it ends.

Good stuff, but it could be a whole lot better.

Typical Stephen A

At times makes great points BUT at times panders to a certain demographic. Sells out only to buy back in, at the end of the day it’s expected by Stephen A.
