Howie's Online Store
And the hits just keep coming...

Some friends tried to take advantage of the $5 off deal he was advertising last night for the Kennedy shows. Yet, when they entered the promo code, there was no $5 off deal.

It's hard to have much confidence in buying from his online store when advertised discounts don't exist, deals aren't fulfilled (such as 'buy this and get this free', but then the freebie is never shipped), and one year paid memberships are quietly discontinued, then new ones pop up in their place under the same name with no credit from the previous one.

It sounds like he's overpromising and underdelivering. After being a fan for well over a decade I'm finding that I don't want to listen to him much anymore. He doesn't make good on special offers, he charges for his podcast then doesn't post them reliably. He is happy to take your money, but he doesn't seem to care to make good on his end of the deal. Some respect for the fans would go a long way.
