    Love listening to the shows but Brad, you need to amend your prank call style on the Snowplough show. You seem pretty lazy sometimes to keep the joke running and lose credibility after a matter of seconds on occasion. It’s similar to Carlito in terms of being laid back in your approach, if you were a bit more engaged and serious it might result in more credibility and better responses from the recipient.
