Do you dislike Bad Listening as much as I do? 
I was listening to a Sports Radio TV morning show that has three co-hosts who interact. It is amazing how poorly they communicate. There is constant interruption. It is hard for any of them to get a sentence in before another is interrupting them and arguing.  It is frequent to hear two of them talking non-stop at the same time for sentences!

Do they think this is entertaining? Do they think this is great sports journalism? Do they think they are displaying mature interaction?
