Great, Fun and Entertaining

I love this podcast. Ben and Shawn are two of the most down to earth hosts i've ever listened too. When you listen live its almost like they are right in front of you talking to each other while drinking coffee. Cool and casual. Ben is great about taking in and providing feedback from their live listeners and the podcast is always dependable. You wont be disappointed.

Going downhill

Used to be a decent podcast but have been underwhelmed lately. Sean Blanc is the only reason to listen. He actually has insightful and intelligent commentary on the subject at hand and actually seems to have some enthusiasm. Benjamin Brooks simply comes off as a Gruber wanna-be but without the talent and seems to be too bored or aloof to be bothered with showing any enthusiasm regardless of the subject. Still listening for now but not sure how much longer it will remain in my subscription list if there's no improvement.

Guys I can relate to

Great show. Two guys talking about the same things I am interested in with great insight. I feel like if I had the opportunity I could hop right in on the discussion and fit in. Shawn and Ben's impeccable taste and varied interest always provide for a good listen. This show is definitely the podcast I most look forward to during the week.
