Love Mario and this show

Keep up the great work and absolutely amazing value, discussions, and guests.

WolfCatPhotos ,

Fantastic Podcast Very Much Worth the Time

It is an excellent podcast. Mario does a great job of interviewing his guests. He lets them get all their knowledge out to the listener, far too many interviewers like to put in their two cents far too often and it takes away from the knowledge that the guest is trying to get across. Mario and his guests seem like they are having a conversation over a cup of coffee. Mario does.not competing with his guest.s. It is a great podcast. Please keep it going,

Keel Team ,

Great podcast, Mario knows his stuff!

This is a great show with a commercial real estate investor that really knows his stuff! Thanks for all the great content Mario!
