This show needs to be more popular!
The GOOD: Jack is a great host of a brilliantly formatted show with some insightful guests...
The BAD: too many unnecessary swearing for a show marked "CLEAN" in iTunes. I would like to let my kids listen....
The UGLY: The two Geelong guests DJ Paine and Jono Pech are pretty hard on the eyes....
It is what it is
And it’s never not what it is
Hot Takes For All
Discovered IIWII via the ATEBITCollective and it has quickly become one of my weekly must listens, Jack is a great host who delivers an extremely polished product coupled with an insight that is second to none. Loving the rotating weekly guests as well!
