where'd Grounded Reason go?

it's been dissappointing not seeing any new episodes come into the podcast feed. at this point, it's hard to believe that their last episode was 2 years ago!

i've searched their website and scoured the internet... but I keep coming up empty handed. where did these 2 go?! i hope it's not another sad story like reddit :(

cant undrsnd the pcast ,

Dennis is Great

I found this trying to look for more information and education about block chain. I am listening to episode 19. Both guys are good at explaining things but Joel just comes across way too condescending/salesmanny to me. Also maybe drunk? Otherwise its very good content and i am still giving it 5 stars but I don’t know if I can sit through many more episodes, personally. I will try a couple newer ones to see.

Great show listen to learn how to cut the cord.

Listened to few episodes. Figured cutting the cord wasn't a big deal. Saving money each month and enjoy listening to where the internet and ISP provider business is going. Cable isn't dead but change is coming.
