New to this all

I'm new to BI and this show has been a great way to learn the jargon of the profession and start to understand what I'm doing. I highly reccommend it.

Delivery & format needs polishing, but topic list is interesting.

Your topics are relevant. But the delivery needs a lot of work. The podcast has a high noise/content ratio. Lots of silly asides and long introductions. For the 5 episodes i listened to, i found it best to skip the first 5 minutes and the last 3 minutes, because the hosts make lots of smalltalk and jokes. None of it is relevant to the listener. And during the conversation, there are a lot of silly asides that can be confusing for those of us who haven't met the hosts. That is distracting in a podcast. There doesn't seem to be any structure to each episode. Instead, it feels like a stream of conscious delivery like you'd get if you just walked up to someone and asked them about the topic.

Engaging

I really enjoy the content and focus on Microsoft PowerBi and how it’s being used by various groups. I like the attention to how the product is evolving from the desktop and mobile app, to on-prem server, to the service in the cloud. Very useful to get ideas in this space.

Keep up the great work, gentlemen!
