-4 stars for infomercial

I was loving the Waze vs Apple Maps episode until the shameless embedding of advertising for a certain vehicle that sponsors the podcast. How can I trust any other "information" to be unbiased? Very disappointing.

Unnecessary politics

I’ve listened to and enjoyed quite a few of these short series, and always found them quite entertaining. I’m listening to the NFL podcast series right now, and am disappointed by the way they are representing Donald Trump. While almost every other billionaire and millionaire “character” from Business Wars is given respect and usually portrayed as competent, even when they had nefarious intents, but Mr Trump is being portrayed as a buffoon. An accomplished and competitive billionaire, being portrayed as a buffoon. The contrast between the way he is represented vs others is glaringly obvious and distracting and frankly unnecessary.
