no douche, in this case.

it's funny to me that dan thinks he is good at interviewing people. he's absolutely awful at it.

I have noticed, over the years, that he is particularly hard on writers selling their books. I don't know if it's some writer ego thing, but he puts them through the ringer.

It was a tad douchey, I’ll admit. But he seems to be trying to hard to make it a personality driven show and has strayed so far from what they used to do.

And dan acts like he’s the arbiter of comedy. He barely cracks the top 3 of funny on that show. Mike is good, billy is good. Let’s not kid each other, all of their funny, the looks like game, the song parodies, most of that is the fans, Mike, Hoch, etc.

The show used to make you think, talked about societal stuff, dabbled in analytics, while having fun. Now it’s all about going for a laugh a minute.

Maybe just the local hour is shitty now. Their “show meeting” or whatever.

I think the main show is still really great. I listen to all of the main hours (not the local hour) every day. I still love it.

Ronny is correct, the show is a shell of its former self. Dan is a full on ego monster now and there’s no going back.
