Gem of a podcast

Need more episodes once per week is an old model let’s go prof! Love it!

Binged listened the first 8 episodes and love it thanks for the value Scott G! Pump more out :)

Smart Talk

I don’t agree with everything he says but he’s thoughtful and has rational reasons behind his opinions.

My only knock is his interviewing skills. He interrupts people too much with his opinions when he’s talking to an expert.

The Worst Part of This Podcast

Why are these so short?

And why is there only episode per week?

Prof G we need you to double the minutes of this podcast per week even if it’s you ranting alone.
