[Hey, no one put up a live thread, and I never listen live.] Part way through and really enjoying the Tuesday show so far. Artie manages to make the Bocchetti mocking (bashing is too strong a word) fresh, and believe it or not I think Artie's grown as a host and an interviewer. It no longer seems like amateur hour when he has the mike solo. (The first couple of times in December without Rick to guide him were sort of painful.) At times I think Artie actually cares about putting on a good show. Of course Ritchie continues to be a valueless-add, but he's pleasant enough. And actually speaking on this episode. Up to the Roeper interview now; decent interview but something about that guy always turns me off. This stood out -- Artie in passing and matter-of-factly said that something "would get us to syndication faster". So is that the goal of the show? Syndication to multiple independent stations and other outlets? That doesn't bode well for going censorship-free, although that's not a big deal to me.
