Three guys sit around and literally just recite "funny" news stories/studies they've seen on a website, newspaper or magazine. If I wanted to listen to that, I would walk in on a group of middle aged uncles playing a game of Gin. Apparently the ability to speak, and have semi-professional audio equipment nabs you a deal with XM. In essence, this is really just a lame attempt at 'morning zoo' FM talk, that fails to offer any sort of riffing about the news/articles they read word for word. It would appear they do attempt their hands at being humorous occasionally, but it always falls flat.
This show would appeal to those who've never heard AM/FM talk radio (which is typically done better) or are just looking for an alternative to what is mostly political talk on those stations. But yet again, you won't find anything much different than what you'd hear on your morning drive stations. PZ might also find a home in a simple minded rednecks iPo- er- Mp3 player, simply because it isn't hard to wrap your head around. Everything is extremely low brow and simplistic.
I suppose you shouldn't complain when it's free, but don't waste my time either.
I can't believe XM would give this airtime, it is an incredibly uninteresting show. No interesting personality, boring and contrived conversations, and a host who has no clue what he's doing. I'd give more helpful criticism if I thought these guys deserved a chance, but they made it very difficult to find anything potentially entertaining about their show.
I very much dislike this show. It is a major disappointment and not worth any of your time. Listen to a better show that will actually make you laugh.
