Christopher !Important ,

Outstanding Podcast!

I love listening to the shows, which are entertaining and educational, especially the Round Table discussion. I am a WordPress developer myself—and it’s refreshing to hear people in the community ‘tell it like it is!’ Well done indeed.

Big Appletite ,

Great podcast, love the panel, could do with less audio troubleshooting, interruptions…

The title says the bulk of it; I’m a big fan of the podcast, this is my favorite WordPress one. My biggest issue, if you can call it that, is that the moderator/host interrupts a lot. Love his feedback and input when he talks, but oof does it hurt to listen to. Second, the audio seems to be a recurring issue—I think that troubleshooting this before the show would go a long way. We want to hear you all talk, not troubleshoot your mics.

All the best!

Never boring

Jonathan is an excellent host and makes sure the show is always interesting, and never boring. A must-listen podcast for any online business owner.
