This show used to be good but Jason has shown his true colors over the past year with his constant whining & talking down to his audience that are pitching him ideas. We get it, you're smarter than everyone. Food for thought, Jason... instead of cutting people off & talking down them, you could do it in a less condescending tone. I hope you take this review as proper criticism in the way you've come off, but I highly doubt it. I'm just a dumb, old, non-San Francisco business owner.
