Great show!

Spencer kobren is a true advocate for hairloss sufferers. The show is awesome! Very informative! Unfortunately it seems as though the podcast isn't always up to date. And for those of us that can't listen in on Sunday nights, it's a bummer.

Mixed Feelings

I've been listening since the beginning of 2012. Sometimes the show is very good and informative with exciting and promising industry updates. Other half of the time the show seems like a really bad public access channel show by teenagers who can't stop stroking their ego and bashing their "detractors".

Potential for so much more, too bad the same negative and eccentric callers pollute the quality and Spencer keeps talking about how awesome he is.
