The Daily Talk Show audience (AKA The Gronk Squad) are an interesting bunch. What we all have in common is that we’re curious, imperfect — but seek self-improvement. We’re open to new ideas, we can have a laugh at ourselves and love pushing against the status quo. We know we’re Gronks and we embrace it.
