Ryen - you are the man, but I hate having to turn off your pod because of Chris making an ignorant, race-related comment (especially when it seems like he's such a cool guy).

Kevin Clark literally whispers and then yells constantly and that's why I can't listen to his podcast because he goes super quiet and then all the sudden starts screaming can he talk normally within the microphone please!
