Great

Podcast is well made and well researched but the Zip Recruiter adds are a bit much, in 20 second hearing this name for at least 10 times.

One sided

Ep.4 almost finds balance by saying Amazon is a success because we want it, but can’t quite bring himself to say it. Very obviously had an agenda going in and sticks to it. Interesting story of you can look past the bias. Good idea, poorly executed.

Insidious

I am not a fan of this giant company
and these podcasts have described perfectly what I always suspected;
Control and Domination!
Thank you for a brilliant cohesive report on this company.
