Looks like I found a gem!

A friend of mine turned me on to this podcast and I can’t thank them enough. A great quality podcast with a variety of people who have created their own success in online media publishing. Most of the episodes are around the one-hour mark, meaning there’s lot of time for host Ben Aston to pull some amazing insights out of his guests.
