Wide ranging solid takes

Lots of topics but great takes.

J explorer ,

Well...unsubscribed

Would have been nice if this cast could have kept the vaccine propaganda push out of the content. Also agree with many others, Norm has really become insufferable.

Washburnhero ,

Was a long time listener.

Went downhill when Norm took over. Kishor made it worse. Jeremy is the only bright spot, but ultimately can’t save this for me. To much Disney butt kissing.
