A favorite

Truly one of my favorite podcasts. Feels like I’m sitting with a friend who geeks out on the same weird things as I do, but I’m just listening in on the conversation. Been listening for over a year and won’t stop!

Fascinating, Unique, and Refreshing

Andrew, one more American stepping up to your call for an overdue review.

I’m a single guy in my early forties I’ve been listening to On The Edge for about six months now. What I enjoy about Andrew’s pod casts is every time I play one I feel like I’m sitting down with a friend (Andrew) and meeting a new person (the guest). No political rants or extreme view here. Andrew’s kind demeanor and willingness to listen, allows his guests to open up. Giving us, the listeners insight into the guest’s real thoughts and feelings. I feel like Andrew draws out his guest’s true HONEST thought in a sincere manor, not an easy task. The line up of guests are a mix of big names, and unique, interesting individuals. Many of the guests I don’t personally like or agree with their views/life choices. However, Andrew never allows a rant and I leave with a better understanding of the guest’s thoughts and a broader understanding of different world views.

Andrew, Keep grinding these out, I appreciate your hard work.

Interesting show

Andrew has a wide range of interesting guests and is willing to discuss pretty much any topic in the true spirit of free and open discourse which is crucial to a free and open society. He will remind you nearly every broadcast that he is anti-woke which makes me wonder if it is the status symbol for him that being woke is for others. But overall, good show. I am left wondering how it is that Meghan Markle manages to live rent-free in the heads of every middle-aged white British dude. Maybe he can cover that in between ads for Jordan Harbinger.
