Fantastic podcast

I really enjoy the mix of content on Taekcast and quality of guests. Davis has excellent interviews (more like conversations) and he brings a lot of curiosity and honesty. He asks a lot of good questions about the future of things like fantasy sports, gambling, cryptocurrency and nfts. His podcast always has me thinking afterwards, sometimes for several days. Keep up the great work.

Sad

In listening to Takecast over the years, you come to discover Davis is leading the charge to end Americans’ first amendment rights. This is a pro-tyranny stance. Sad.
