He doesn’t listen to music and is terrified of controversy

Typical millennial man trash
I love the NYT and I love listening to people talk about pop culture. The one host who can’t let anyone else finish a thought is so obnoxious and annoying and is such a hater, almost every take he has is objectively bad and not based in anything other than his own opinion. Ridiculous get a new host
