Um, Yeah, NO! - Keeping Bad Content Away From Your Audience

Every month I ask my audience a question. This month is have you ever been approached by someone who OBVIOUSLY has NO CLUE about your show?

Special Thanks To: 

Bernie from Bernie the Cat Show

Lee Silverstein from the Colon Cancer Podcast has people wanting to talk about Cancer conspiracies.

Glenn Hebert from the Horse Radio Network had someone ask for a donation if he didn't want to be on the show.

Matthew McClain does an audio drama (obviously no guests) but still gets solicited to have guests be on his show. His show is "A Scottish Podcast"

I had someone contact me about the Healing Our Marriage show (which is defunct) and I "Played" with them, and asked why they loved my show

Jason Bryant from Matt Talk Online
