They Have a Future Beyond Search, as Comedians!

In the episode I listened to, three smart guys, John, Gary & Martin, play off each other with nuggets of SEO wisdom interspersed with 3 foreign friends’ humor in their non-native languages.

Great to hear these nuggets, their humor and obvious friendly respect these guys have for both SEOs and each other.

Cheers
