Insightful and entertaining
Behind the scenes and straight from the horses' mouths. Great podcasting from great researcher.
Fantastic - great knowledge and enjoyable to boot
The boys at Talos knock it out of the park with an entertaining and informative podcast. I love finding one not riddled with advertising and product placement - that just focuses on the information I want to hear.
I'm the host, so...
You'll be shocked to see that I gave this podcast 5-stars, I know. To be honest, I almost gave it 4-stars based solely on how long it takes to edit out all of Joel's nonsense babbling. However, I really think the other hosts make up for his yammering on about things. It's a amaizng to get to work with people who are so knowledgeable and helpful. Just this morning I told Nigel I was going to make fun of him in my review and instead of getting angry, he sent me some drone pictures of my dog playing in my backyard! How nice is that! I didn't even know he knew where my house was!
