Wide ranging solid takes

Lots of topics but great takes.

Great show with a singular flaw

Love the podcast whenever Will isn’t on it. I ended up unsubscribing because they keep bringing him back so frequently. He’s the reason why I don’t listen to the other Tested group’s podcast with Adam; which is a real bummer because I love learning things from Savage through other media sources. Kishore, Jeremy and Norm do an excellent job together and have great pacing and chemistry. They also bring other excellent guests in from time to time but Will ruins the show completely for me.
