Good show

I enjoy the podcast, good analysis. Too much self promotion. I don't need to hear about going VIP every 10 mins.

Review of Wade Keller Podcast

I am a long time listener of this show. Wade Keller offers good insights and the show is well formatted but I can only offer three stars due to all the plugs and interruptions. Further, the “setting the table” gimmick is a bit of a waste of time. Just get to the meat and potatoes. We know who you are! I get the VIP version has no ads, but that doesn’t excuse the number of repetitive ads and awkward breaks as compared to other free offerings in this market. This is still a great show with an enthusiastic host and round table of guests, but it is rendered almost unlistenable due to the above mentioned reasons. Consider this review an overdue purge of my frustrations while admitting there’s still enough here that’s worth a listen.

Long time listener

I love the analysis but there is just TOO many commercials. I swear you can fast forward anywhere in an episode and you have a 80% chance to land on a commercial

Ridiculous.
