I’ll never understand the negative reviews on podcasts like this one, especially when it’s named “The Uncomfortable Truth”. It’s clearly not intended to satisfy every personality or belief system - but it is hard to argue the logic and truth spoken in the episodes. I for one appreciate the honesty and wisdom. For the easily offended, I’d recommend finding a podcast without the word “Uncomfortable” in the title.
I’ve been really enjoying this podcast. Nice work, Alan. Looking forward to the next one!
This guy is completely self-absorbed. I actually ordered his book on Amazon, and read he had a podcast. So I thought it would be nice to hear him while I wait for the book to be fulfilled. I listed to 3 episodes to give him a chance, and he is terrible. I canceled my order before it shipped.
