Rant of the Year 5th Nominee

Rant of the Year goes to #1 the unaired NPR interview rant.

BB praises the rant, he says it met the criteria of taking place in 2014 and was on point, vague praise.

Adam says it was because of their bias and further laments the experience.

Adam thanks the listeners for tuning in, BB thanks all of the staff for their long hours spent cutting together the episode.

Dawson gives me a nice thank you for an assist, I didn’t do much.
