Any adults in the room?

I like hearing daily news on ag topics, I just wish it was more professionally done. What’s the purpose of Davis Michaelson? Chip and Davis sound like a couple Elementary girls singing to each other and giggling. Can any of the adults at farm journal persuade chip to do straight news and information. And get rid of Davis Michaelson. Your best shows Are when you get right to the news.
