Enjoy it, but
Way too many commercials. No justification for it.
Awful. Why Bruce Mitchell is given a platform is one of the worlds greatest mysteries . Keller can be tolerable when he’s not rewriting promos and imitating wrestlers .
VIP Membership Plug-fest
The content is okay. I agree with Wade some of the time, I disagree with him some of the time. My issue is that the plugs for this show, plus Wade’s use of filler words “uh”, “er”, “you know” adds easily an extra hour onto the show. It’s hard to focus on the content when every 3 minutes you’re reminded of how you can skip ads and get back issues from 20 years ago. Also, surely Wade has notes and rehearses this Podcast a little. The amount of filler words is reminiscent of a 5 year old giving their presentation at school, not a long-standing ‘journalist’. Think before you speak, son. I’d pay for a VIP Membership if he could edit out all of the “um’s” and “er’s”. Maybe that could be his next plug?
