A nice combo of education and entertainment

I really enjoyed listening to the first episode. Tony did a good job with his interview and the quiz at the end is what made the show unique and fun for me. Look forward to the next show!

No thanks

Listened to Episode 68 and 65. Not at all what I expected, more of personal vanity show than useful info. 68 was absolutely the worst podcast I listened to in recent memory. 65 was some what better. Manufacturing content was what I wanted, not a show that is personal auto-biography of the host and guests 90% of the time. Please focus better and tighten things up.
