Great insight and perspective!

Steve's perspectives and comedic twist on topics are entertaining and interesting. I thoroughly enjoy listening. Keep them coming!

Highly Recommend

Love the combination of insight, wit and humor which Steve brings to each session. Even more, in a time of inescapable political banter with each side digging in their heels, impressive how Steve effortlessly slides back and forth on the political spectrum which makes him both unpredictable and highly entertaining.

Succinct, entertaining, and informative

Excellent podcast describing the current state of economic affairs, the underlying causes, and what to do about it. Not to be missed!
