  • new host?

    i don't know why i listen to this program. i like the topics, but i don't like how it's hosted. also, it's one thing to enunciate; it's another thing to try literally to spit the letters T, S, X, and D across the room for 25 minutes straight. the host's microphone must be soaking wet after every show.
