You are missed Tom Ashbrook
Please do another news podcast Tom ashbrook. The world waits for your voice.
This show used to be my Absolute favorite podcast. But it lost its warmth and flow after removing Tom Ashbrook for rubbish reasons. Sorry,but the quality of shows has fallen. If Tom ruffles some feathers in the pursuit of excellence, so what. Unfortunately Tom was a victim of Me Too gone too far.
BRING BACK TOM! I’m sure I’m not the only listener that feels this way and waiting for him to return on air.
Not the Same Quality After Tom Was Canned
Used to be my favorite and one of the best podcasts available. The quality of the show has taken a nosedive since Tom's sacking.. I gave the show time to recover and get back to it's previous quality, but It has not so I have given up. Sadly, I am moving on.
