me me me me me me me meeeeeeeee....! I know you're the guest but was Rob even there hardly? and c'mon Bethany.... what was her name? you have a few to pick from with her. the "That girl" girl. and the name dropping! "i run into the top 25 blah blah blah ...." Sad thing is, you have some valid points, but it's the 'I'm better than everyone else' attitude that makes you ugh........ by the way, how much did you pay 'that girl' for your top rated podcast? serious curious. Rob, lots of stuff is being left out ... be cautious.

Rob I enjoy most of your guests, But I am cringing every time the episode becomes more about you than the actual guest. Please be mindful of the time your guests are giving of their time to your audience. We have heard all of your stories and tune in now to the guests.

I can't bring myself to listen to the circle back liar, but am curious - does she say "uh, ummm" as much on this as she does behind the podium? That's her "tell" that she is lying - every time she says that..(I can tell you, when a politician says uh or ummm they are lying - very interesting listening if you keep that in mind)!
