With one less contributor it would be 5 Stars..

John is unbearable. Just started listening to this Pod and I love it. If there were an option to remove his nonsense from the Pod I would easily rate this a 5.

Very informative and entertaining!

Love and hate

I have listened on and off forever. Show can be amazing or horrid depending on topic or moods of hosts. Really inconsistent, but seems better lately. Explain what happened to Kyle sometime on show please. Love when they talk about Jason S. The weasel joker on the show.

Good Not Great

I don’t usually write reviews but after listening to about 8 episodes I decided this one needs it because it’s close to being top tier. Matt and John are fun to listen to. They have great chemistry but very different personalities that bring variety to the show. Michelle is the outlier holding the show back. She has an aggressive, opinionated personality that is quite uncomfortable to listen to. Honestly, I felt bad for a lot of the people on the show because of the things she has said to them. If she dialed it back a little and allowed people have their own opinions, the show would be much more enjoyable.
