It’s obvious the host intention is transparency for all listeners. Personally, the podcast is too long to complete in one session. But, it’s worth listening all the way through. There just isn’t too many objective and trustworthy sources in this space. So, it’s a relief to find such a source. Thank you, for not wasting my time.
