    1500 D&S&E: They Made it to 1500??

    1500 episodes? That's impressive when you realize they've been talking about the same nothing since 2014. Have I been writing notes for them for THAT long? Shit, I need to find a real job. I'll start looking tomorrow. How about that show art? Only the very best AI can spell "Episode" wrong 2 different ways AND hide a penis-ruler in the top right corner. Money well spent you dim-wits.

    1499 D&S: Doug Doesn't Want to Fly

    1499 D&S: Doug Doesn't Want to Fly

    Personally, my favorite part of this episode was Strickland commenting on last week's episode with Doug and Emily. I probably would have agreed with everything he said if I had actually bothered to listen to the episode.

    D & E: No S in Site

    Hold on, Strickland takes the week off and I hear about skincare products? Damn, I love hearing Emily's voice but I'm still torn if this is an upgrade or not.

    1495 D&S: Together Again for the First Time

    1495 D&S: Together Again for the First Time

    Hey, Jared gave me a nice shout-out about my notes last week, thanks man! That's more praise than I ever get from Doug or Strickland, those guys don't appreciate for a minute how I skip through their episodes barely listening to whatever dribble they're rambling about and rarely touch on even 1 topic they discuss. When I read that back out loud, it actually kinda makes sense now...

Emotionally Intelligent Host Interviewing on Emotional Intelligence

Doug really stays focused on the guest, but it’s more than that. He improvises questions that get into where the guest is coming from and digs into what human needs drive the guest’s point of view. That’s next-level podcasting.

Authentic and Relatable Topics

Doug and Strickland are hilarious. They bring humor with great informative topics in each episode. This show is authentic and the hosts show a deep understanding of their audience and guests. This podcast has easily become one of my favorites to listen to.
