DgolNY ,

Great brainstorming

Good energi with a lot of great ideas

irispils ,

Love the content but...

...in some episodes the sound is extremely bad. Recording a person talking on the other side of the room without a mike, talking over people all the time, reverb; there is some work to do on the tech side.

ArthurSaves ,

For entrepreneurial minds

Great value if you want to build your own business or just want to hear a good story. Casual conversations with awesome guests, love it so far!
