Great from the guys point of view!

I’m trying to research more podcasts (because I’m creating my own soon) but I love hearing the modern and progressive views from these guys. Thank you!! Maybe we can collaborate 😉. Keep it up!

Predictable. And not having a female on the team will be extremely limiting. Seems mostly beneficial for hosts and not listeners.
