Enjoyable

I’m really enjoying listening to the inner workings of Amazon!
But, please, PLEASE pronounce the T’s in the middle of your words!
Mr Mar-in in Mr MarTin!
Ti-in is pronounced TiTan!
And so on.....
It’s driving me crazy and making a good podcast with cool content almost unbearable to listen to!

Another show ruined by the liberal lunatics

Decent show til they started bringing in “experts” who constantly throw in their liberal opinions that have nothing to do with the subject at hand.

Insightful beyond just Amazon

If like me, and Amazon is your most used technology, then this podcast is a must-listen. Exposes so many of the long-term implications of this behemoth, and is raising our conscience about everyone from the workers and small businesses that Amazon touches. If you are a consumer, you too play a role in the new customer expectations that are putting so many pressures on this part of the economy. Plus Jason’s pacing makes something that should be pretty dry, pretty entertaining.
