Fantastic and very knowledgeable

I've heard two episodes and love the format and conversation style discussion. After hearing the podcast, I can say I'm more aware of the companies discussed and it helped me to understand marketing 101. Keep up the great work 👏👏👏👍👍👍

Suggestions : the time can be compressed to 30-40 min.
