Great Podcast Topic!
Hey guys, just wanted to drop a review and say thanks for putting together this podcast. Overall, I think this is such a great topic to cover, and in this first episode, you hit on some examples that I think lots of folks find themselves in (me included). Listening to these text conversations made me cringe at points, but I think that’s excellent because it’ll help make listeners aware of how their own texting may be coming off as cringe-worthy.
Of course I loved the advice on how to salvage the situations, and the humor is superb gentlemen. Ian may have been a bit “interrupty” but I think that’s just a minor timing issue that’ll work itself out.
As you both declared, these text situations did come off as manipulative. It would be even cooler to not only hear advice on how to salvage the situation, but also on how to setup a non-manipulative dynamic from the start. Anyway, I really liked this first episode, and I’m very excited about future ones! Thanks again.
Who doesn't want to hear other people's awkward texts?
Hilarious concept. I can't resist these awkward train wrecks of text conversations. And the hosts banter back and forth make it like your reading them over with your most witty set of friends.
The best podcast
Omg.....you guys crack me up! Very funny
