I know I am in the vast vast minority given the twitter reactions and probably complaining about it make it more regular but 6 hours of trying to shoehorn as many racist, homophobic, and pedophile jokes into a show isn't why I have listened to the show podcast for the last 2 years or 3 years.  I only listened to about an hour or 90 minutes at a time before I had enough of it for the day.    But again most people loved it

Yeah, no, not me either. I admit to laughing at some of what he said, but a majority of it was just the lamest hackiest shit imaginable. Ooh, Buddy Landel had a coke habit--what a refreshing take. Maybe that was edgy to say among sheet-readers in 1992 but here it came off about as sharp as a wet bowling ball. I dug in my heels and finished the show, but I'm with BigBadMick...maybe a quarter of a segment.

Usually BTS is good at dialing back that stuff the following week, but Bix following that up this week with a minutes-long digression about a proper substitute word for "castration" wasn't one of the show's high points, either. Thank God for PocketCast's 30-second skip button.

I know I'm a stick-in-the-mud on the subject because a little bit of Tom Green goes a long way with me too, and I know I'm in the decided minority on that.
