Great show!

Love the thoughtful analysis. No nonsense. Joshua is not afraid of asking those difficult questions. I also love the way he asks for clarification if a guest uses an acronym or lingo that he didn’t get....often I wonder what the guest said but Joshua asks for an explanation.
Fantastic podcast!
Thanks Joshua!!

An enjoyable listen

I was hesitant to hear Duane was leaving but this is a fabulous replacement. I like the mix of topics and how discussions progress on the show. It definitely worth a try.
