Please get new microphones

This is a great show, but everyone sounds like they’re talking through a tin can. You can hear everyone breathing in, moving their microphones, and even background sounds like babies crying. I really do like the content so I stick with it but please invest in better equipment!

REALLY APPRECIATE THE ANALYSIS

Show does a great job giving you value for a subscription. The analysis is top notch and it really is different than other podcasts out there. However, this show works best when it’s just Brandon and Gullo. Jesse really drags down vibe of the show. Not only is his criticism often wildly negative (usually just for the sake of being contrarian), but it often comes at the expense of his fellow co-hosts as he’ll often eat up a bulk of the run time (there are some episodes we barely hear a peep out of Gullo).

I’m still giving this show 5 stars because of the incredible hard work and consistency that the podcast has built over time.

And there’s been some incredible collaborations with POST Wrestling that feel way more incredibly on-brand and insightful.

Lose this guy he’s not a draw!

I like this podcast , but I don’t think I will continue to listen. This guy Jesse is so smug, and he never stops talking! Why did you allow this to occur Brandon? He’s essentially drowned out Gulub. Jesse also admits that he doesn’t know about a subject yet speaks like an expert nonetheless.
