Look Forward to Every Episode.

Really enjoyed this week’s episode about the Sears/ION Innovation center. Any amount of info on this very interesting project is gold
to me. I listen to the podcast via the Stitcher app. I shared this epi on Fb as well and received a lot of likes. Guess I’m not the only one of my friends interested in this experimental development initiative. Wish the episode was longer tho. But I’m grateful for the time spent on the topic.
Keep up the good work Looped In team.

Interesting but it lacks something

With it being the most diverse city in the US, this podcast lacks diversity in every sense. I would love to hear more voices from people of all walks of life.

A bit boring

Regardless of the topic, it doesn’t hold my attention. I find myself asking whomever is speaking to get to the point and cut the banter.
