Customer Reviews

More navel gazing

I like Jason and David. They are talented and their other podcasts are wonderful. This podcast highlights a problem with the Relay network - a problem that used to plague 5by5. The network fosters a clique of particular people and then they just create an insestuous array of shows where hosts mix and match. The end result is an echo chamber.

Furthermore, the network's founders have been obsessed with the meta-topic of independent business. During Relay's first two years, listeners have heard Jason, Mike, Stephen, and others constantly navel gaze about their independent career. I do not think people buy newspapers to read about how the newspaper is made or how difficult it is to make. You don't hear John Gruber talking on his show about being independent - he just does his thing.

This show is the embodiment of these issues and I do not plan to listen.

Waste of my time

This is another one of those podcasts where the hosts think no matter what they ramble on about people will like to listen to them. It seems unprepared and unprofessional. I like David's voice but Jason is hard to listen to--doesn't seem prepared and rambles on without sounding polished. I guess he's trying to sound natural but it's naturally annoying to me. Save it for the personal journal of your life and home movies.

Indispensable for the self-employed.

This is such a great show, and has helped me so much in my transition to becoming self-employed. These guys are entertaining, and they know their stuff. As with all podcasts, the audio is top-notch.
