Enjoyable show except for the host

I greatly enjoy the regulars on the show, Jeff Jarvis and Stacey Higginbotham, but I cannot stand listening to the host, Leo. As others have stated, the show is much better when Leo is out and Jason Howell fills in.

il-buono ,

Good overall

I've been listening to the show for years. It's an overall good show. Lately though, Leo has been making it a habit of bringing up his son's TikTok account and it has gotten annoying. He's a proud parent, but there's no need to make it a regular thing on the network.

A Review of "This Week in Google"

I had found certain parts of what I had believed to had been certain installments of this "This Week in Google" to had been vulgar, negative, unprofessional, unnecessary, and detrimetal.
