Good Podcast...but we have to talk Dharmesh.

Hi guys

In general really enjoy the podcast and the different angles and transfer talk is great. I do however have one major problem with the podcast and it’s Dharmesh’s insistence on yelling the presenters name, whoever it is, on every single podcast at the start. PLEASE STOP THIS...I know you might think it’s a trademark or catchphrase but in reality it’s just grating and I have to skip the first 2 mins of every pod because of it. Or then that sterling work and keep up the good work 👍
