Great!

Love the website, love the podcast. I probably only buy 1-2 things per year, but I love hearing about useful things. Gets my brain working.

Consistently Interesting

Lots of useful and practical information underpinning conversations that provide insights into a wide ranging series of topics. Mark and Kevin ask the questions that are relevant, helpful and interesting. Some of the guests can bring “tools” that are pretty esoteric but even when it’s over my head I enjoy the interaction.
I am a early podcast fan and have listened to many over the years and I really love this podcast. Keep up the good work. (Bonus: The website is my other Wirecutter-type resource. Love it too!)

Good information, but...

I do like how the podcast interviews various individuals about the tools that they use to help them in their day to day work and home life. However, in the phone view of the episode descriptions, the only thing that is listed is the interviewee's mini-biography. There is no written list of the tools that are being discussed. As it is now, if something is mentioned that I want to remember, I need to be able to take notes while I am listening (a pain while I am washing dishes or driving). Fortunately, the cool tools website does have a detailed list (if I can remember who it was that I was listening to- thank you self-deleting podcast apps...), but it would be nice for the phone view of the podcast to have at least a brief list of the tools in each episode.
