Previously a realistic cynic (or a cynical realist?), Greg "spinn" Galcik has decided to give optimism a try for a while. Pushing his boundaries and understanding his limitations, he knows he can occasionally be awesome...but how to keep being awesome? (Note: this description is not one of the awesome things, clearly.)

My best podcast ever
Of all the podcasts I've ever done, this one is far and away the best. The audio could be better and the content could be more interesting and the logo is kinda so-so, but still, relatively speaking, top of the pile.
Lots of fun
This is exactly the podcast I would record if I were to record a podcast, which is pretty useful if you're me. Greg is refreshingly honest, insightful, and entertaining to listen to. I only give it four stars to mess with his head.
Very relatable topics. It's nice to see... Well hear that. Overall very nice job and I hope you continue. And the logo is fantastic. Truly awesome.
