Thank you guys, keep up the positivity in your message. I am just starting this whole journey and find a lot of useful info in behaviors and things to avoid especially having to work and study in my time off of work. I appreciate you guys!

Danny McVey ,

High quality podcast.

Matt and Eric are doing a fine job documenting their learning journeys and sharing useful information to others who are on the same path. I’ve found with some other similar podcasts that hosts tend to be a little preachy or otherwise full of themselves but these two so far have presented information in a way that is relatable and down to earth. I especially appreciate their honesty in, for example, episode #34. Great job Matt and Eric!

Extremely relatable

Love that you both feel relatable to the average person. Makes you feel like you’re not the only one struggling with the same things be it networking or knowing what to do next.
