Chemistry

The “Millionaire” series is informative, fun, and entertaining as intended. But, Jen, Jay, and James have a real chemistry that could translate to any podcast format. It’s like being in a diner and sitting next to this table of three people who couldn’t be more different, but seem like old friends. I want to pull up a chair. Please keep it going.

Extremely disappointed to hear Tony Robbins guest

Tony Robbins is a cult like “leader” with a documented and embarrassing history of discrimination, misinformation and selling snake oil health remedies. He spreads misinformation about Covid and vaccines. It’s EMBARRASSING you would invite him on your show. You’re probably getting a cut of whatever crap he’s selling now. Shame on you James for having this man on, you’ve lost the trust of your listeners for good.
