great show on no-BS advice
was super surprised to find out how young the host is!
otherwise, a great show uncovering the lessons from founders' failed startups!
Host is really REALLY bad
The host needs to really work on his verbal communication skills. He probably said “like” a thousand times in one episode, and seems to have a really tough time communicating clear thought. His guests are awesome - but I cannot listen to this host for one more minute - such a disjointed stream of consciousness! This poor guy is just mind-blowingly bad.
