Been watching on YouTube for ages, finally started listening here, love it

The Best Podcast There Is

Long format, lots of dicussion and references, lots of awesome information, and I could listen to Simon talk all day (Daven as well, but Simon’s accent is super chill and soothing). They have great chemistry and really play off of each other’s strengths and weaknesses. For exampe, Simon doesn’t Iike Star Wars and doesn’t really watch many popular movies. Daven does. However Daven doesn’t like most vegitables, but Simon does, etc..

I discovered this podcast after being an avid TIFO annd Business Blaze fan (the latter of which is he best channel on YouTube). I’ve been listening to everything in reverse order and have almost gone through all their post content.

My only complaint is the lack of new podcasts. Earlier in the streams, it seems they would release one or so every week. The latests podcasts come about once a month (if we’re lucky). I’d love more, but I understand that Simon and Daven are some of the busiest people on the internet. I know I can always check out the YT channnels for content, but it’s easier to listen to these podcasts while I’m at work...even if I’m working from my sofa.

Keep up the awesome and keep ‘em coming! And Simon, please watch The Princess Bride.
