The duality of podcasting

Brilliant and silly, intelligent and ignorant, funny and oftentimes cringeworthy. The boys, Dan and Greg, run a wonderfully balanced podcast that’s easy to listen to, informative and actually makes me laugh. Love it.

The best ever

I have just finished listening to EVERY episode from day 1 back to back. And yes, from (no such thing as a fish)

Ohhhhh mate. Well worth the listen. If I was Bin Laden, I would definitely rate this 9/11, but as I’m an Australian, I rate this well above Bundy run, and that’s saying something.

Dan; he takes a bit to get used to, but his delivery is 2nd to none. Research is definitely his strong point. The kind of bloke that you’d like to see your daughter bring home.

Greg. For a color blind, vegetarian teacher who works out of his field, he goes alright as well. Shoots from the hip, sometimes misses, but a good 7/10 factual. Again, an acquired taste, but a great human as well.

I will be promoting this podcast on my social media platform for the next week, and expect nothing in return. But if you get a few more subscribers, we will know where they’ve come from.

The format has changed over the years, but each time for the better.

Well done boys. I’ve learnt from you both. Both from the information that you’ve supplied, and finding a podcast format that is OUTSTANDING!!!!!

What Price Victory

Well done mate.
