Informative and interesting
Roben has excellent guests, tackles complex issues with poignant questions which both keeps the listeners interest and is easy to follow. Always learn something.
Roben is just a wealth of great information and this is the best Podcast in the market.
An eloquent wonk that guides a wonderful conversation.
I feel so lucky to have Full Disclosure based here in Richmond. But it’s not completely Richmond centric, Roben brings all of his worldly experiences to the table. The catalog of podcasts are deep. It ranges from James Beard award winning chefs, to hard nosed journalists talking about their latest coverage. Roben can hang well with any guest. Full Disclosure is hands down my favorite long form podcast. #arbitrage.
