Customer Reviews

Another great 5by5 offering

Dan Benjamin does it again! Glad to see Merlin and Dan working together on a podcast that is bound to rival The Talk Show in terms of quality op/ed, intellectual insights and humour to boot.

I'll be back every week - and then I'll get back to work once I'm done listening! Looking forward to seeing where this podcast is headed!

90 minutes for a 90 second message

Listeners: don't waste your time.

Dan and Merlin: "What's stopping you? Go do it!" Gotcha. Great message. How long did that take? If you're going to reach for a 90 minute program -- particularly one with this title -- here's another old chestnut for you: "Do your homework." Love the metaphors, but you can only pad and stretch a thin message so far.

Great Team

This is another great podcast that Dan Benjamin is doing. Merlin Mann is an interesting guy who has a quirky way of explaining his ideas and it makes for compelling content. These guys play off of each other so well and one may say that Dan is the peas and Merlin is the carrots.
