    I just found this episode really really difficult to get into and get interested in. It was like Tom didn’t have a definitive opinion on anything and fence sat on contentious issues. From every other guest to date, I could get used to their idiocies but I couldn’t get used to Tom’s sighing and saying “you know”. 1 episode I don’t like from 77 is a pretty good strike rate. 👍
