Lack of attribution

For a couple of people hosting a podcast, it was really weird to listen to them completely ignore the hosts of podcasts they recommend and instead go by “some random guy”.

The Okay Thing

They could be more in depth or speak from an expert's point of view, but they settle on being an entry point for people without context. Meh.
