The early episodes of this podcast are great. You should defiantly listen to the first year. These two have wonderful insights into running a small business as well as managing people and success. The problem lies in the fact that this podcast gets far to political later on. Pat’s always great. His thoughts and arguments are well thought out and interesting to listen too. Max, however, needs to take off his tinfoil hat. He make the podcast almost unlistenable later on. It got so bad I couldn't finish it.
The casual back and forth between them is relaxing. The flow of silly and serious is natural, and keeps me engaged 100% of the time. This has been the only podcast to meet my expectations set by The Adventure Zone.
Reflections on life
This is more than a potpourri podcast. I've listened to every episode and now need to go back to listen again with a notebook in hand to write down all the gems in every episode. So smart. Such interesting point of views. Really appreciate you guys doing this.
