Entertaining!

These two are much more fun than that blowhard Reformed Broker dude. 😏

Unmatched!

A true unicorn - this fast-paced paced, intelligent and thought provoking podcast rises far above anything I’ve subscribed to in the past 10+ years, from a listener who normally has over 25 finance titles active in my queue. The innovative format is a much needed breath of fresh air in the space. Kudos!!

Arrogant bore.

Arrogance incarnate. Batnick, self aggrandizing, puts me to sleep every time.
