All About Jason Wise
Ended my SOMMTV subscription ( not enough new content ) and no longer want to hear Jason talk about himself on the podcast.
Excellent Content but Jason Wise talks too much!
I love the content of all the Somm podcasts, but Jason Wise goes off on long rants and soliloquies and doesn’t let his guests talk enough. He forgets at times that he has a guest. I’ll still listen but this is more the Jason Wise podcast.
