Drop the business whisperer

Does not get what is going on in the show.

Love the podcast, so glad Succession is back.

A suggested topic for future discussions of Succession: I’ve noticed that they rarely, if ever, show any of the Roys eating food. I can recall Roman having one bite of an apple in a convenience store. He also smells a biscuit at management training and then puts it back. The only other instance I can recall was Greg and Tom eating the ortolan, but we didn’t actually see that…

Wondering if you think the showrunners have been intentional in depicting the Roys’ relationship with food, and what might be behind those intentions.

Elite often

I’m very disappointed on there handling and discussion of recent events. They have been very one sided, bordering on arrogant. The most recent discussion of the CNN milk report really shows how pompous, arrogant, elitist and out of touch they are. This used to be a fair review of the major themes affecting our economy and now it’s just a rehash of what the Biden press secretary says. Will be unsubscribing.
