Keep em comin ..great potcast!!
Really enjoyed the casual tone of the show. The content was informative with real world application.
Looking forward to the next program in November.
Such a great opportunity wasted
Bob Lobel acts like a juvenile with little evidence that he ever worked in the field of journalism. Dan Adam's of the Globe, one of his first guests, shows how the culture, industry, regulation and business of marijuana needs to be covered. Lobel needs to grow up and have a little more respect for his listeners who clearly must know more about the subject than he does. I hope so or the misinformation and argumentative attitude he demonstrates in this pilot will do more harm than good.
