My absolute favorite podcast

Long time listener catching up on my reviews.. and shocked that this only had 1600 ratings. Shane is a great interviewer, and unafraid to ask tough questions - the recent Ackman ep was a good example.. would love to see a bit more diversity, but keep up the good work!

Too much old white guys :/

I think many of the advice comes from too much white privileged and not a lot of awareness.

Great info mixed with political bias

This show has some amazing information; however, it is intermixed with political opinion portrayed as fact. Specifically I am referring to episode #83-“What Really Matters.” Perhaps what should really matter is being unbiased and eschewing political opinions that may offend people? Perhaps Shane should update this mental model? It does help though because I can now point my associates away from this biased content. Thank you.
