Bob is nothing but an overly earnest, self-serving, knob. This isn't name calling, it's fact. He is an expert at stating the obvious, his questions are often puerile, and he laughs at his own awful jokes. It's also great to hear him go on about his trips in and out of the country on the tax payer's dime, oh, and those who donate to NPR. And I have to say, a whole podcast, partially paid for by tax dollars, devoted to hawking his book, is truly pathetic.
Robin rubs salt in the wounds of the working class by repeatedly mentioning his paid time off for his baby. Why don't you throw on that Kenny Loggin's track again Robin? You know, the one you secretly admire and wish you wrote.
The only reason I don't hate this podcast is because for one, hate is a very strong word, and two, every once in awhile, they offer up a good track/intersting band. It's usually Robin who puts it out there, and, Bob, awkward because he is out of touch and doesn't know the song, much less the band, starts interuppting Robin with bad jokes. I understand that goofiness is rooted in insecurity, but come on Bob, get over yourself.
Suffice it to say, this is one of many reasons why I do not donate to NPR.
