Customer Reviews

Authentic, organic conversations

I love listening to this podcast for a few reasons:
- Kent is a busy guy and I never get to have the kind of conversations with him that I wish I could have. This cast gives me a brain dump straight from the source every week.
- This cast is raw, unprocessed, completely meandering, and delightful
- The topics range from Jay-Z’s ambition to debates about the scientific merits of cholesterol studies
- Nick and Kent are completely unafraid to follow the most interesting tangent and unravel any thread

This is the only cast I listen to every episode all the way through.

My advice for you guys is to keep the raw feel of a conversation between a couple of old friends. I think having guests on might spark some good chats, but there’s no rush. Keep the ideas coming!

Must listen

Must listen for those of dealing with the inner monologue that says you can be great or happy, self reliant or a control freak, a manager of people or an executor.

Were all just figuring it all out.

One of my favourite pods

I love the conversational tone and breadth of topics that Nick and Kent go into. Audio could be a little better but the content is great.

What would Jay-Z do, Imposter Syndrome and the Crypto one are my fav.

Hope they cover pricing yourself, finding time to do side projects, books / other podcasts they like.
