What happened to this podcast?

I've listened to every episode. I loved it when I first heard it and sent it around to my friends and family. I just turned it off mid episode because I can't stand how heavily the dialogue leans on New York to cast light on that the podcast is out of New York. It used to stand on its own merit but now the writing has gone so downhill that I cringe multiple times during an each episode. As a fan I hate to have to admit to myself The Truth has become very low caliber media. I'd love to see(hear) it turn around
