Diminishing returns

I’ve been listening to the inforium/CIG for 6 years now. It used to be my favorite podcast. However, in the last year it has really felt like it has took a nose dive.

My issue is with how much particularly Thomas retells things he has already said. By this I do not mean advice, very often he repeats the same stories nearly word from word. Initially, I didn’t mind this because it usually was repeating something from maybe 100 episodes back, but lately their have been multiple instances where something mentioned in the last episode is said again for verbatim.

Example: In this most recent episode Thomas goes down a tangent describing how they have never truly sold a a product of their own and how he has been focused on figuring out how to do so. This exact same tangent was present in the previous episode.

I can understand not necessarily remembering everything said in every episode, but maybe reviewing at least the previous episode would prevent this from happening more often.

Need fix it ! ,
