Fantastic Content

Guests and topics are excellent. Listen at 1 1/4 speed for faster consumption. I travel for work and can listen to 5 or 6 of these in a row. Well done guys!!!

dont review too often ,

And then they said Twitter was going to implode

Use to love the show. Had great tips and interesting projects. Now it’s getting political, bias, opinionated and a lot of talking about themselves. I still give you a shot every episode hoping for a turn around but ultimately end up deleting episode and making a played. Sorry guys, hope you find your roots again.

Quit whining about Twitter

Great informative podcast that discusses a whole lot of interesting things and then has really frustrating sections where one guy whinges about twitter. If you want to talk about politics make a separate podcast; I wont listen to it, but maybe someone else will.
