A great listen

This is one of my favourite podcast right now. The ideas they come up with are impressive, even more so how many they generate on this show.

Love it!

I listen to a lot of business pods - this one makes you think critically of every position these two are taking. It’s unlike interview style or story style... No offence to your guests - but the best episodes are you two riffing ideas.

High energy podcast with lots of creative ideas

If you haven't listened to the podcast yet, do check it out. It's unlike any other business podcast out there. They sometimes interview guests like Andrew Wilkinson, Scott Belsky, Sophia Amoroso etc, but mostly its just banter between the two hosts (Shaan and Sam), where they talk about strange and interesting businesses and break down their revenue models.
