Great Source of Information

Scott offers some of the best content about the self-storage industry. He has great speakers, and asks so many of the burning questions out there. What a great format!

Dummy1969 ,

Great info but…

Host REALLY needs to stop saying “mmhmm” over top of the guests a thousand times an episode. Makes it almost unlistenable.
