High value listen

I enjoy this podcast bc of the relevant, real-world scenarios that Dave talks through. You can tell he cares about his listeners and his advice comes with a healthy amount of integrity

Content might be good, advertisement killed it

I could barely get through any content without constant barrage of advertisements making any quality pretty moot. Wouldn’t recommend.
