CAN teach old dog.....

Even tho’ I have been an architect for many (!) years, I still pick up juicy tidbits from Bob and his cohorts. I live in the mountains and the podcast gets me down to Denver most felicitously. It’s like being back in an office (of staff > one, that is) listening to their banter and architectural nuggets which I don’t get as a sole practitioner, working alone in my loft. I wasn’t sure how this would work on a non-visual platform, but Bob pulls it off!

Solid but not overly Impressive

Bob imparts a lot of good information but tends to take a little while to get there. While there are a couple moments of nice dialogue, he doesn’t let his cohosts talk much - they mostly seem to be there to occasionally make a joke or LITERALLY repeat whatever he says.

Bob Borson is Great!

I've been following his blog - which is also great - for years. I was skeptical when he announced he was starting a podcast, but it's even better than the blog! Always informative and entertaining.
