Overall review....I DIG the content and energy of the show....even the sound effects
This is easily one of my favorite podcasts to listen to while I work! You guys always give ACTUAL tangible things that are valuable for anyone with an online business...and then you include the links to check out resources mentioned.....nice!
Nice little rhyme at the end of episode #37....needed the comic relief. thanks!
Keep it up the awesome work!

This is my favorite podcast right now (and I could really care less about lifestyle or beaches). Thanks guys.
My favorite podcast
I'm sure few people will believe me when I say that one of the first things I do in the morning is roll over and see if Dan and Ian have posted a new podcast for me to listen to on my drive to work. In fact, I check every morning before even getting out of bed. I know it typically only comes once a week, but hey, I can hope...right?
I continue to be amazed out how much knowledge and information comes from these two men. They're actually DOING business, not just theorizing about it or speculating what *might* work. Their knowledge and what they say has already been tested by THEM before it gets to us. If only more information was held to such standards!
And not only are they crazy smart, they're just plain enjoyable to listen to. You can tell there is a great friendship and working relationship between the two guys just based on how they interact. I love it! I love finding something that is not only smart and tested, but shows how enjoyable work can truly be.
I continually recommend this podcast to people looking to escape from their desk. ABSOLUTELY my favorite podcast!! These guys rock so hard, your face will fall off!!!
PS - If you ever release more than one podcast in one week, I'm going to pretend it is just for me. :)
