My favorite podcast

Hikercapecod ,

I used to love it now eh. Try it out though.

I’ve enjoyed this pod for a few years now. A lot of great ideas. Funny stories. A few actionable gems, but they are far between. It’s worth listening too, give it 5 or so episodes for a chance, and they do feel they are untouchable, and certainly don’t hold back. They are also playing a bit with new formats so give it a shot. I do have to say the ego thing and bro thing is a little annoying but they do provide good info. I hope they get their groove back, as it used to be so much better. You can sort of tell this is just a thing for them, as before it was THE thing for them. Again though give it a shot
