Well Tony, ‘sucks’ is pretty strong of a word. :) I’ve got a different dislike of Tom’s show than I do of The Woodsmith Shop. I’ve watched most episodes on TV, never watched his podcasts until the show was announced. Now those podcasts suck. I’ve tried to give the show a chance, hoping it would improve, and it has. He is slowing down ever so slightly, and the audio has improved just a tad. However, it seems as though he makes one or more comments on every episode that just comes across as arrogant to me. I’m old enough that I can do without the arrogance. We’re not on the playground any more. And as for the teaching, he doesn’t come across to me as wanting you to learn anything. And yeah, I could do without his road trips too as someone already suggested. Hey, you can’t please all the people all the time, and I’m sure it will get better as time goes on, hopefully.
