Customer Reviews

JohnTheos ,

Getting to be unlistenable

When I listen to podcasts, I’m looking for the hosts to understand the material and provide me with their opinions on the matter. Unfortunately Steve has decided that that’s too much effort and now spends his time just reading others reports or press releases to the audience.

EDIT: someone suggested playing this episode at 1.5x. OMG does it make it so much better.

Less ads

Steve is great but my god Leo is annoying, I hate the super long ads repeatedly , seems like Steve just reads articles from a couple sources essentially just regurgitating them

Jebus Simpson ,

It’s just a giant ad

Great content but I swear every week there’s a 20 minute commercial buried into the show from the host hawking his own products. It gets really old and tiring. The show isn’t worth half each episode being about Squirrel, Spinright or whatever he has. Not worth subscribing too
