Best way to start Saturday

Great podcast that unpacks the news and highlights stories not always highlighted elsewhere. This podcast is positive and upbeat. Worth a weekly listen.

Unnecesarily Snarky

A good enough show that nicely summarizes the week-in-news but Sam and his guests obviously have little-to-no respect for things they just don't get. Their snarky attitudes towards things like Science Fiction films, MCU movies, and --generally-- geeky passions gets under my skin, much like Big Bang Theory. I've been cutting out all holier-than-thou, smarmy podcasts from my listening regimen (as well as TV shows) and, sadly, it was just one time too many with the laughing-at-people-who-like-things-"unimportant" for me. I'll find a podcast that makes its interstitial humor moments without punching down.

Fresh and original

I like ending my week driving home on Friday with Sam and his guests unpacking the week and having some fun! His episode on Millennials and Money was fascinating and insightful. Keep it up Sam and team!
