  • Man, this show really fell off once they started changing the hosts. Imagine watching Seinfeld for nearly a decade and enjoying the characters and their interactions, then suddenly they decide to completely change the cast every few episodes. Tf? At least there's still the back catalog 🤷🏼

  • Only writing this in the hope the people who produce this podcast drop Stuart gipp. I've listened to wvet episode of this podcast for years but I won't even download an episode Mr gipp appears on. I'm British and the man's impossible to listen to. Every word he says sounds bored and sarcastic which is a shame as there's been a few episodes he's been in recently that I cannot listen to as his sardonic delivery puts me off.
