If you like the title you’ll love this podcast

Binged all the podcasts in a week because it’s so well done. I look forward to every new episode that comes out. Ben has a high content to word ratio and makes every minute count. Couldn’t recommend more🙌🏻

Growing obsessed

I began with the two Steve Job episodes. Absolutely loved both episodes. Stoked to listen to the rest. I hope 2021 will produce some great episodes!

Update: coming up on a year of following and listening. I’ve re-listened to some episodes a couple times and can’t get enough. I’m excited for more episodes to be released
