We know, that Batnick knows, that he interrupts, but it's getting to the point of being annoying. Why even have a guest or even have Ben there? Batnick should just do his own podcast that way he can just go about whatever he wants to talk about and can interrupt himself.

how much more evidence do you need that Batnick is an idiot: "... to the hills." instead of "to the hilt" "... take it with a grain of sand" instead of "take it with a grain of salt" 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
