Great show!

Officially my go-to cannabis podcast. Enjoy Shinade’s hosting.. always asks the best questions and does an excellent job of leading the conversation. Amazing guests too. Highly recommend

DoubleR💯 ,

How can anybody listen to this

The host is terrible she has to be one of the worst interviewers I’ve ever heard. She always just agrees with whatever the person has to say. All this podcast is in paid promotion for companies

Sean.OB ,

Great information but lacks listenability.

Overall I enjoy the show. The guest are very informative and offer fantastic insight into the industry. Albeit, I just can’t get over the monotone and pre-planned responses/questions. The podcast severely lacks listenability. Please do better
