Not about FOMO

Not bad content, but based on listening to ~10 episodes here and there, I am not sure what the focus of this show is supposed to be. To me it seems like the guy who purportedly coined “FOMO” is doing misc podcast talkshow interviews with author/notable people in his network. Although the interviews are occasionally interesting/useful, the podcast feels sporadic and lacking focus. Most topics can probably be traced back to the concept of FOMO in some way but the title seems misleading; wish there was more insight and development on the concept of FOMO.
