High quality podcast

This podcast is among the very best (on any subject).

Topics and guests are spot-on and interesting.

The host has prepared good, direct, probing question - which the guests are prepared for. I always learn something that I can use.

Unlike some podcasts - the host makes it about the subject matter — and not about himself. As I mentioned, his questions are direct - and do not have a long extended wind-up before finally getting around to what he wants to ask.

The audio is almost always excellent quality.

Excellent podcast & content

I've become a podcast junkie the past 4 or so years, listening to a variety of topics. Kudos to Brent H for both the enthusiasm instilled in his/his guests contributions to each episode, and the amazing insights Front Lines alights as to places I choose spend (some of my favorite) hours each week. Keep it up Brent!
