Busy employee ,

Factual but irritating

I must admit that i only listened to the medical episode and one other but the host was rude to one of his callers and to his guest when she tried to correct him. Good idea for a podcast, bad host.

P.S. the hosts lisp is annoying

Jackpot Poker is my new Fave ,

Fear
