Totally worth it!

This podcast is fascinating. It’s one of the only ones I’ve ever been able to listen to all the way through. There are a million tiny facts that I didn’t know!

Disappointing changes

No more Dan Bobkov and now it’s a crappy, scripted interview-style show with little history and no real value. The Scouts episode was not even listenable, it was just an anecdote from one of the hosts. I used to be so excited for new episodes and now I’m unsubscribing. I really liked stories about the origins and choices of favorite brands, not pointless and highly scripted interviews that don’t really talk about the actual business or marketing.

Mundane products have a story!

So interesting to hear some of the stories about businesses! Makes my everyday commute fly by.
