" @Monkeygb21: Being a host and being an audio level manager and mixer are totally different things "
However, since the podcast host is the one who also mixes the audio (on the Bombcast, I know there are other podcasts that have separate hosts and producers) I count it as one job. The way Jeff mixes (or rather doesn’t bother to mix) is a pet peeve of mine.
That being said I still prefer Ryan as a host. He does a nice job of keeping things on task and away from Nintendo downloads (hey look, another pet peeve).
Jeff is a fine backup, but Ryan is the better host.
