Interesting content irritating host

I like the content and I really like Cobus (Kobus?) van Staden. He's smart and reasonable. But Eric Olander is so freaking annoying. He's often casually racist towards his non-white guests. He's often really rude to the African guests in a way that he never is towards white guests. Maybe he doesn't mean to be and maybe it's not on purpose but I listened to a lot of them all in a row and it became clear. I'll keep listening. But I really don't like him at all. If he was less of a tool I would have given them a higher rating.
