The Whigs ,

This is now my daily podcast.

This podcast is just incredible. Fantastic storytelling and insights, and I learn something new and fascinating every episode.

Only flaw is that in some episodes from 2020-2021 the volume levels are messed up. The main content is super quiet to the point you need to turn volume all the way up just to hear Sam and Shaan. This would be fine if the ads didn’t blow out your eardrums when they start without warning.

Hilarious

The only podcast where I can learn about business and laugh my butt off.

Energy is on point

More than just business ideas.
