Listener: Great story about the smarmy motherfucker with a popular hipster podcast. That had to be [Name]. Love the pod and I love following the trend.
[Name] makes interesting observations and is definitely an intelligent guy. He is a charlatanical self-promoter, however, and after reading his books it is clear to me that he would sell anything to make a buck and I question his ethics and moral compass.
Keep up the great work!
Covel: Not [Name]! He was on my show.
Listener: I was wrong! Well, the culprit must not be on my radar. Love your books!
