Excellent and well thought out content and interviews!

Excellent podcast- knowing Ed personally he is always insightful and found him to be a deep thinker. This seems to be a good pairing and this is definitely worth a listen on the drive home!

Obnoxiously arrogant

I have read a few of Ron Baker’s books over the past 15 years. They started out having great ideas and I’ve implemented some of them. But over the years he’s become arrogant and spends more time bashing other models than providing real-life implementation ideas. I bought his latest book Time’s Up and immediately returned it. It was full of high-level concepts that were meaningless in practice. I discovered this podcast and decided to give it a try. On the one episode I listed to, Ed and Ron spent half the show bashing others and other theories and providing little value. It was like listening to a politician telling us what’s wrong with everyone else but providing no solutions. They were arrogant and obnoxious. I’m not sure how people like these two guys.

My most important source of new ideas

Full disclosure. I have been a guest on the podcast.

Value can be defined as how something is better with you or how it would be worse without you. I’m a much better business person having become a fan of this show. As a professor, researcher, and consultant, TSOE is my primary source of new and innovative ideas. It’s the ONLY podcast I listen to with any regularity and that I will go out of my way for.

I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who doesn’t thrive on the status quo.
