Master of your craft!

Scanning your episodes you have so much good content. Your last episode on AI was super fun! How you talked about creating fully AI podcast episodes was very cool.

scam podcast ,

Fake podcasts

This man does not actually create his content. He uses AI to falsify episodes without ever making an attempt to create them, and doesn’t disclose this. Morally reprehensible.

Toyinsbello ,

Business advice grounded in reality

This is my favorite business podcast
Roland isn’t just a wizard of business he’s also just as much of student and a voracious consumer of education. That means you’re only getting the best pieces of information from his learnings.
