The expertise is only matched by the candor

Blair and David have known one another for a long time, and worked in parallel in the agency industry. They know where the other’s expertise will shine, and they know how to push one another’s buttons.

These characteristics make this podcast as enjoyable to listen to as it is rewarding to put their advice in to practice.

Please don’t stop guys!

Outstanding business podcast

David and Blair have a keen sense of what’s relevant to creative entrepreneurs / agency owners. They blend engaging topics, keen insights, and tremendous wit into one fantastic show. During every show, I either cringe after hearing a mistake that I made in my agency or delight in “how to” advice advanced by the hosts. Either way, this podcast has become a “must listen” part of my daily drive time. (Sometimes I even drive a little extra to take in a bit more of the 2Bobs.) Well done, gentlemen!!
