Thanks Michael

I really enjoy your short podcasts. They’re extremely informative and I think you should do more of them! Also, your episodes have inspired me to start my own podcast called Gritty and Curious. It’s about sharing Gritty & Curious ideas people, and communities. Would love to have you on sometime; you’ve been very influential in my podcasting journey.

Matt (is awesome) ,

Good Topics and Guests but too many commercials

Many of the podcasts are about an hour long and 15 minutes of that hour are commercials or intro

aphill27 ,

Great content, too long on intro commercials

Good podcast and great content on every episode, but shorten the intro commercials. I get it, you’re on WAG staff and they’re a sponsor, but make it a shorter commercial or in the details notes list what time the podcast actually starts so regular listeners can jump ahead. Or maybe break that commercial up into 15 second segments throughout the whole podcast. Love the podcast and i learn a lot, but the length of the intro is tough.
