Witty, insightful, and relevant

Always an insightful, witty, and fun. Great at delivering hot takes on industry trends and happenings. Having done my own podcast for some time, it’s hard to deliver weekly content that is consistently strong, but this show seems to be consistently good. Also BBQ.

DeuceIsLoose ,

Way too long

In an hourlong podcast they talked about the topic for about 10 minutes. Lots of rambling off-topic conversation. I had to turn it off and unsubscribe because I couldn’t take it anymore.

Sam Sam Sam Sam B ,

Interesting Fun discussions

I enjoy the dynamic nature of the conversations, with how their combined expertise and working knowledge bring to the fore ideas that really get you thinking.
