I like JB. He gets somewhat repetitive, but he’s good at collating the big picture on the economic situation, as well as the social deconstruction going on all over the country and his bad news delivery is well done. The impression I get listening to him is of a reasonably intelligent regular guy reporting on the ongoing economic and social trends happening all over America and especially California and making strong suggestions that just maybe, you ought to take it seriously and get ready for even worse times coming. I haven’t missed too many of his “reports” in the last couple years. I also like that he includes several of his buddies on a pretty regular basis, in his shows, a couple of whom have created their own “spinoff” channels.
