It seems odd that Randall decides to leave weeks after genes last begging letter. A possible scenario is that Randall had an agreement that there would be no begging. Gene made two beg letters in 2020. Randall sick of it most likely told gene that if there was another begging letter he was gone. Gene published another begging letter and weeks later Randall is gone.
I find it ironic. In the past Steinberg took great pride in not working for anyone else. He wrote tech manuals and had his websites. Now old age has set in. He now has to beg for virtually everything to keep his head above water. Those websites are a joke. How does he think his posts are reaching people? It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.
Most of us here (myself included) are not fans of Gene, but what kind of person quits as co-host right when the other host is about to have open heart surgery? I stopped listening before Randall started as co-host so I really don't know him at all but it sure tells you something about his character.
By all accounts Randall does most of the work on the show. He tracks down the guests and prepares any questions. Steinberg likes to tinker around and pretend he is in charge. If you read accounts from Biedny and O’Brien they did most of the work to get the show up and running. Often times you could hear Steinberg eating in the background as the show was going on.
