Keep it up

Really good resource for studying on the go. As feedback I suggest to keep episodes with host/guess how make emphases on some high yield content. I think is kind of boring when the host/guess is like only reading the information. I like when the host gives like his own personal thoughts and then the explanations for the questions.

great on the go resource

Love using this to stay productive while walking my dog, meal prepping, or running errands. I appreciate the variety of people they get to talk on the show and the tips they provide on top of the content.
