Listener Email (01:35:37)
Listener Andrew from Canada sent in an email that asked the question: Do people watch shows or watch networks? He heard someone say something like “It’s on CBS, so I’m not watching” on a previous podcast and it got him thinking about the subject. We talked a little about the topic.
