The Original Double D ,

Best Podcast Out There

Eric Weinstein is the smartest social/economic/scientific commentator around right now. The quality of the dialogue and the complexity of the ideas discussed on The Portal are outstanding. My only wish is that there were more episodes available!

Eric! Baby! Sweetie cakes!,
Listen, Love the podcast and the direction you are trying to go in. The thing is it’s not starting off great.

1. Advertising placement is horrible. Please do not replicate Rubin and have ads in the middle of a conversation. it’s really distracting.

2. IF you have to add ads in the middle of he podcast (for financial reasons) get a real producer who can edit well. so that the transition from conversation to the ad makes sense and has a flow to it when returning back to the podcast.

3. Eric, you’re brilliant. you are also personable and you are approachable. The thing is though, the three guests you've had on so far are the opposite of that. I know having a compelling conversation for broadcast is tricky. I get that. However you can not continue to interview boring unintelligible geniuses that no one wants to listen to.

Theres a pathway forward in getting information out there to the masses and the masses wanting to listen to it. It’s about delivery and engagement. Having Theil, Herzog and Kuran is not a great start in that direction. they are all clearly intelligent but who cares when what they are saying is not engaging enough to continue listening.

I believe in your mission for exploring the portal and I am a fan. I just think the podcast can be a hell of a lot better.

I caught you on Joe Rogan and have looked forward to this podcast since you told us about it and it hasn’t disappointed.
