Apart from the baffling sycophantic treatment of Sheehan, thought Barrett & Hutchison were perceptive in their take on it.BarRat surely is not on the Thomas xmas card list. Gave a blistering assessment of Thomas' character.
As Hutchison or Barrett observed, strange move by Sheehan to even go on the podcast in the first place.
