Bradford is awful and a Red Sox hack.

Great content from seasoned host

I enjoy the Bradfo Show, yet not as much as when Bradfo co-hosted with Alex Speir. My favorite interviews are the one’s with present and former players. My least favorite episodes are those with Gabrielle Starr and Chris Cotillo because of the ways in which Bradfo panders to both as if he’s awestruck. If either are ever on a future episode I promise I won’t listen. 2020 Bradford is so different from Bradford earlier in his career. The latest iteration is a name dropper who sees himself as a celebrity akin to Jarrod Carrabis.
