The online streams for TSH suck.

I had been listening on my Amazon Echo via TuneIn for a while without issue, but moved over to twitch when TuneIn would stop at random times during a show. Then the same thing happened to twtich and I moved back to TuneIn. Have had to restart TuneIn four times so far this morning, which is actually less often than usual.
I use Spotify, other than the same 3 commercials repeating, there's been no problems at all

Adam Jones is so bad that I just spent 5 minutes vigorously agreeing with John Wallach.
Bert Breer, in his own nice way, destroyed Jones today and his obligatory hot BB sucks takes. Utterly silenced him -- which was great to hear.

Lovely. The 5 minutes I was referring to was Jones vociferously advocating for a Harden trade. I mean, one can make a case for Harden, but not the way Jones did it.

You guys all need to just chill, put the feet up and shoot the breeze for a bit. You'll feel better. Y'all too uptight right now.

I swear if I hear that damn pizza commercial one more time...
“Your business was going great. But then... [ughh].”

Skip forward 30 seconds works quite well, but yeah, the commercials are annoying. I usually skip twice at the top of the hour to avoid Fred reading everybody’s social media handle for the millionth time.

My favorite repetitive ad was over the summer - a promo for Mass Golf. But the way Hardy (I think?) read it, it sounded like “Mask Off”. At first I though Schilling was buying ad time...

I've been trying to remember which commercial was the first super annoying one, you just reminded me. The insurance one is getting there too. Remember the good old days when there were no commercials until the last minute, minute and a half of each hour?

You guys know Tom, the GOAT, Tom Lahey, the Insurance GOAT. Between that and Ryaaaaaaaaaannnn I'm good.
that one and the one with the RMV/insurance nonsense.

Separately, is Joe Murray as bad as I think he is? Most of the time it seems like he’s barely paying attention - unless it’s about gambling. Especially when he does the updates. Just checked out and lazy.

So many people on this board like him, I just don't get it. He's a hot take idiot.

So as a Joe Murray defender, this is kinda how i feel like lately. especially on Twitch where he's on camera he seems checked out. It's weird because when John and Fred were out for long stretches over the last year, he wasn't like that. It seems recent. He's getting a real shot at time on one of the largest shows in the market and his effort seems to be far less than it was. I don't think he's a hot take idiot, I like him but there seems to be some issue.

@DSG77, Fred's back tomorrow and Thursday I believe and then back out on Friday.

The rent-a-friend thing that Rich just ran was both hilarious and incredibly frightening. I have no idea how he finds this stuff.

I wasn't listening earlier in the show, but Fred's rant about the rioters, and Belichick, at 9:40am today was fantastic.
It was equally good earlier in the show. Pointing out all the randos who received the award was a perfect touch.

I went back and listened to the last 20 minutes or so of the show on demand, and glad I did. Classic Fred.

Their interview with Manish Mehta this morning was fascinating. Dude did not come off well at all.

Agreed, only caught part of it though. I wonder if they will give some air time to the others involved
