Great to see such a podcast!

Conversation

Honestly my only complaint is the constant filler comments like “uh huh” “wow” “mm hmm” “right” “ok” “gotcha”. It grates when you just want to hear what the person is saying. It adds nothing to the conversation and as such, you probably should refrain from doing it.
