Well worth the listen

I may be biased. Just a bit ;p

Thanks for pressing play.

The show about freight

There are few freight shows that get how to have fun and how to make these concepts relatable. This show isn’t one of them. It’s not just a great show about supply chain, it’s simply a fantastic podcast in general. The guy who doesn’t like the enthusiasm sleeps in dirty underwear under a wet blanket.

Tone it down

I wanna listen to this podcast and learn more about the industry but the over the top enthusiasm and fake personas is exhausting.
