Chris R 818 ,

A great Podcast for those trying to be a better man everyday

I love how these guys approach topics that most people wouldn’t find as an issue!

Overall good

The only way it could be better is if they one host would stop saying “right?” after every sentence. Verbal tics like that are very distracting.

Listen Away

This podcast is exactly what the modern man needed. It’s always a pleasure hearing an episode for it’s content and the vibe it brings to one’s speakers. If you’re looking to learn and relax, get a cigar, turn up the podcast, and listen away.
