    This woman is a phenom! This TDS Host is not. I can’t put my finger on why…but his vibe and delivery seem woefully inadequate for this venue.

    Appreciate how Kosta asks questions like a normal person and doesn’t try to show everyone how smart he is. He also lets the guest actually talk! Refreshing to see in a host.
