A running joke on The Morning Stream is the idea that people will be angered enough by a single statement to go to iTunes and leave a one-star review. Here's a list of many of the individuals and groups that Brian and Scott have imagined inciting to leave bad reviews.

Main Morning Stream Article


In episode 62 of The Morning Stream, Scott talks about somebody who gave the show a one-star review for Scott's opinions about the death of Osama bin Laden, as the listener perceived them.

In episode 73, Scott revisited this, starting the meme and then stating that "I just want to make the point that just because you hear one tiny morsel of information that you may disagree with doesn't mean that you have to flame out, leave one-star reviews, be pissy on comment threads, and explode on the Internet. I'm just trying to encourage and foster open communication, the ability for differing views to come together and decide where they may have some common ground and discuss where they don't and not be dicks!"
