    Ray, great job on this show.. good pace, hit all the hard questions but kept Carter on his toes. Nice work on the calls and the live reads were great too! I’m a big Carolla fan, but maybe you should just have him as a guest from now on?? 🙂

    Ray on the House is actually more enjoyable to listen to than Ace on the House.

    Great show. Ray should be the main host. That way
    Adam’s schedule will free up a bit. It was nice not to listen to
    the same stories that Adam weaves into all of his other shows.

    Great job, Ray! Enjoyed the show. Hope you become the main host and have Adam become a guest host once or twice a month.

    As much as I enjoy Adam belittling Ray every episode, I think, as someone already mentioned, it is time to completely hand over the reigns to Ray alone and let him host the series by himself so Adam can lighten his extremely busy schedule. Granted though it would mean having a guest on every episode- that might be a slight problem.

    I am actually enjoying all the Ray solo episodes.

    Great job Ray!! I love Adam’s podcast but this show is better with just you. I am so impressed by your interviewing skills. Ray on the House 🙂

    Don’t screw this up Ray! Stop borrowing money from Adam, hurry up and give him his $11,000.00 back. And for the love of God, stop calling Adams accountant. I love the show with both of you. Ray with some focus, energy and spending some FREE time, you can make this podcast take off and make some money. Adam has money so don’t wait on him to bring the goods. Plus he’s givin you a great opportunity to do something fun, work indoors for a change and make money.
    I’m a proud ship staying afloat supporter.
    Cheers guys

    Great job on the show Ray. I enjoyed hearing you without Adams side complaints. I’d suggest in addition to addressing the callers add in a topic for the show, like this week we’re going to talk about how to install a stone walkway in your lawn or how to frame a non bearing interior wall. You could even make the show into a series of episodes for bigger projects where you have to listen to episodes 200-210 for building a brick BBQ. Maybe the show needs to turn into a video podcast. oh and I’m getting tired of hearing 30 somethings call in about fixing their crap finish work on the house their girlfriend bought.

    thanks and keep up the hard work
