I think you might've done a disservice to yourself and hopefully you go back and listen again at some point. I definitely wouldn't use that moment in time as the benchmark for the show. Not every show is gold, certainly, but the same is true for any other show, like many of the Stern shows I've heard lately. I usually do try to catch both, though. Admittedly, I started listening to the show as result of a friend, and at a time where Jim and Anthony were in studio and not Opie. With Anthony gone, I'm left with a bit less interest in the show, but the guests lately have made up for it. Pete Davidson is great, Artie's been in a few times as well and was great. Race Wars, on the same channel with Sherrod and Kurt is good too. I do think they should pretty much destroy the entire political talk channel setup and replace it with something more interesting. I don't have any interest in those shows and I'd be interested to see the stats of who is listening to them. They're just boring.
