Insightful and informative!

From the episodes I've listened to so far, there is a great dynamic between the hosts that makes the conversations feel down to earth and very informative!

They have interviewed a nice variety of people with interesting titles, histories, and perspectives of the insurance industry. Looking forward to future episodes.

Great source of P&C executive perspectives

They let execs from various segments of the market present their stories with a ok mix of easy and hard questions. Great guest list.
Moderate self promotion of the host company. Hard to find these perspectives anywhere else. Keep it up!
