Harry Campbell ,

big fan of the show!

Just got turned onto this podcast but especially enjoyed the interview with David from Nuro. David seems to be at the forefront of every major mobility revolution in the past 10 years - not sure how he does it, but love to learn from him.

Potentially very good

This is a GREAT show when they put the time to do it, unfortunately most of the time is abandoned, to the people behind it I will say, you either make the commitment to produce the show regularly or just be honest about it and end the project. I was about to take it out of my list, but since there is a new season coming I will give it a last chance.
