    In every partnership, there is a person who stacks the dishwasher like a Scandinavian architect and a person who stacks the dishwasher like a racoon on meth.

  • Talk your book

    Stop with VC and bond talk. Not how u grow interest or entertain. The audience is home gamers, please more ETFs or crypto that’s not from fidelity.

  • Sort of Entertaining, Not Good

    This can be entertaining, but lately I I just skip it. I can only handle a few minutes of it at a time now. The hosts tend to go on tangents, so the flow isn’t great. They also give uninformed opinions too often. I typically don’t care for their guests on the talk your book episodes either. Michael Batnick is officially annoying. I was never a fan of his on The Compound and Friends, because he is obnoxious and inconsiderate of others. Overall, I would not recommend this podcast.
