Very well done

Glad I found this the other day. Smart, well researched host with great thoughts and ideas. Binged most already. Hope there is more.

Love it!

Great podcast. Well-written and expertly narrated. My only complaint (and its a small one) is that I wish new episodes would be released more frequently. :)

I quite enjoy what he is bringing to the table
