Trifecta: Knowledge, Humor, and Candor

This is easily become my favorite weekly podcast. Professor Galloway balances his experiential knowledge with well-timed humor, and interesting guests, adding historical and current references.

Love the show but…

Love the show. Centerpiece of my Tues and Fri morning coffee. However, Kara’s constant interruptions of Scott when he is making a salient point is not only annoying but often breaks and sabotages the flow of listener information. In the early days of the show, it seemed to keep Scott focussed, but now the interrupts have been taken up a notch to the point it is distracting.
