Funny and insightful
The podcast title caught my eye, love the movie The Hateful Eight. I’m not the biggest fan of going to the dentist nor talking about dental issues, however I found this podcast really funny, lighthearted and insightful. The coffee breathing dentist story was classic. I’m hooked...can’t wait for part 2!!!
Informative and Fun

Very natural and casual and of course super informative! I think it's awesome how Bryan is very open and keeps his topics and convos natural... almost as if I'm there! Definitely subscribe!
