Best Freight Broker show

These two guys make every show fun, entertaining and informative. I am new to this industry and learning everyday and I am thankful I ran across this podcast. It is the best one out there and they crush it each and every episode. Give them a shot, they won’t disappoint. If you’re new like me or a seasoned vet you could learn something new with these two! I would rate them over 5 stars if I could. Keep up the good work guys!!

Not bad

Does not spend enough time giving in-depth information for the new broker. Assuming everyone is seasoned.
