    That was hard to pick. All of them would be decent options.

    Can’t vote, those aren’t fans they’re already radio/podcast hosts. Show will be hard to listen to without Matt imo. Always is

      I understand where you’re coming from, but believe me, if we’re getting two hours of guest hosts you want folks who are comfortable behind the mic. It takes years of experience to sound that natural.

      The best shows are during Matt’s vacation IMO. To each their own.

    All of the candidates are good at what they do. After listening to all of these, I feel if Brian Ross and Josh Sharp can keep from drumming their fingers on the table while talking, it’ll be the smoothest transition from what we’re used to hearing.

    If the Homer Radio guys promise to keep their “Garbage or Glorious” segment out of KSR they’re my second pick.

      While I don’t mind the “garbage or glorious” stuff, that is the exact same order of top 2 that I have. Unfortunately, it looks like the 2 I had at the bottom of the 5 are in front right now. I still give whoever wins a chance though.

      Bam a second rounder? Those guys had some really strange opinions and I hated the garbage or glorious thing. I couldn’t listen to that crap.

    I have to admit I find it hilarious that a guy who moved to Washington to live off the grid is doing a podcast with someone on the other side of the country. That’s as on the grid as you can get. Well done though.

    After listening to these it makes me realize how big of a pet peeve it is to me for people to say “like”, “you know” and “umm”. The Ross/Sharp guys said the latter 2 things A LOT!!
