Bravo professor G

hello Scott Galloway

I’m so delighted to have found your ‘solo’ podcast, Prof G.

I learned to appreciate your incite full and inspirational presentations on Pivot with Kara Swisher.

Now, finding Prof G I can hear you w/o Kara.

the hair on the back of my neck rises as I write, my mom said ‘if you can’t say something nice....’

so, it has been painful to listen through Kara with my reward of you. when you were away in Nantucket, starbucks land, I didn’t listen.

Cassius, Ali, said “I am the greatest “ and deserved it. I find Kara conceited, me, me, me, I, I, I, I, and many “interesting”. she brings me no value.

please keep up your work, a fan in Tucson, Marco the cowboy.

Revisited after the election

Revisited after the election... I would love to hear Steve’s analysis now. I wanted to believe his analysis when I first heard it... but I knew it would be close . Even in the North East Bubble of Southwest CT, I know so many Successful people with advanced degrees, who voted for Trump . You may have rattle Trump, but not his supporters. You need to find the root cause.

Excellent History Lesson

I was so impressed with Scott after hearing his interview on James Altucher’s Podcast and then I wasted my time listening to this history lesson. Steve Schmidt just babbled about various military history leaders mixed in with great Americans with his only message being Trump is a bad man (without actually listing one coherent fact) and Scott just sat there and either wasn’t familiar with having smoke blown up his butt or enjoyed it. I guess since Steve liked his book it was just a mutual love fest.

The Lincoln Project raised money because it was easy and they all made out well from cashing in on the easy payout that everyone hates Trump. There is no real substance behind those guys except making a quick buck. Scott must appreciate their entrepreneurship in taking advantage of the opportunity like a fast thinking startup 👍
