Full on Entertainment!

I have listened to a lot of Podcasts as I have a two hour commute everyday. I was instantly drawn in to World’s Greatest Con by the subject, the storyteller’s tone and inflection and the cohesiveness of the story. Brian sounds like he is having conversation with you, just like you are one of his college buddies and not like he is reading off of a script. Very much worth your time and money. This is just like finding your new favorite tv show, and flipping through the episode guide and just hoping that there are 10 seasons to listen to, but then realizing that there is only 1 season so far! Can’t wait for more seasons! Please give this a try, you’ll be glad you did.

Literally one of the best

I listen to a lot of podcasts. This one is head and shoulders above almost every one. The host’s passion, and sense of dramatic storytelling were truly inspiring. Well done. I can’t wait til next season.
