Is it possible to cut back on jargon?

As a dumb rube who didn’t go to business school, I sometimes get lost in sections about “first principles” or “ infomediaries”. Is it possible to at least explain some of these terms when they come up? Otherwise I love the pod, it’s always super informative and brief which is refreshing.

Informational

Great but...

Great content, but the primary host/Interviewer interrupts the guests quite a lot with her own thoughts. It’s unfortunate - please, let them speak.
