Well focused. Useful and relevant info.

These guys being useful and relevant information, ideas and encouragement centered around entrepreneurship and income generating ideas. A general purpose podcast that is general enough to help the masses and specific enough to come away with nuggets to take with you each podcast. Each episode I’ve listened to has been well worth my time without overdoing commercials.

The only podcast I can listen to in the gym

MFM has been my favorite podcast for the last year and a half and I recently discovered that it’s the only podcast I can listen to in the gym because Shaan and Sam’s ideas and banter hype me up more than my typical dubstep mixes. Hoping the boys finally pull the trigger and buy MJs house!

This podcast is one of the few things getting me through the startup slog

Started listening to you guys after leaving SF to move back home. I quit my tech job a year ago and have been building out my startup idea ever since. Listening to you guys 1-2 times a week has been one of the very few things that bring some happiness into the everyday coding grind. You guys are awesome, never change! Also whenever Shaan does ‘beeps’ like the all-in guys it’s super cringey so hopefully do that less.
