Ben Gothard ,

Wonderful!

Seth is a fantastic host with such natural charisma, it’s hard to not love it!

Surprising

The Host is clearly knowledgeable and actually makes the topic of funding interesting. Five stars because I had zero expectations and was truly surprised about how well this was produced. Most importantly there was no awkward upsell. So tired of programs that are really just thinly veiled informercials. Just solid information from a well informed source. Well done! Looking forward to further episodes.
