Good but improvement needed
Love the topics covered and very helpful. But listening to an episode where I have to keep tweaking the volume because it wasn’t recorded properly is a pain. I have to keep going up to make sure I don’t miss out on anything.
Zero informative content
This is a platform for the founder and host to advertise and nothing more. Zero actual content. The host talks way too much and the “banter” with the guests is one sided. Stick to the subject matter experts. Annoying and I wanted to like this so much. There aren’t enough resources and just like the classes Twiniversity offers, this is a flop.
