Info nuggets

Just the right length to learn something new every day. The ads really do run longer than the actual content tho which is frustrating. I hope they begin to make new episodes again soon

Top Notch

I’ve like this podcast since the beginning, but the sound design continues to get better and more interesting. I’m also happy to finally have a daily podcast that includes the weekends in their definition of daily! Thank you!

Amending my review to dock stars ONLY because of the jarringly AWFUL ads that have NOTHING to do with...... anything really. Did they really poll the audience of this fantastic podcast and determine that this audience wants to hear annoying radio jock style ads?? Still love the content but that quality is the only thing that could get me to suffer through the same style of ads that sent people running from traditional radio.

No new episode?

Been listening to this podcast for a while. Yes the commercials are a pain as others mentioned but I suffered through since I liked the show. Sadly, it seems that they are not making new episodes anymore. Repeating shows that have been repeated before and such... so.. I’ll unsubscribe now.:(
