  • The Fall Of MLST

    Oh how the mighty have fallen. It deeply saddens me to say, but MLST went from my weekly go-to to a hard pass. The shift towards sponsored content is painfully obvious, with some episodes feeling more like infomercials. The "interviews” come off as nothing more than a platform for founders to pitch their ventures. If I wanted a non-stop sales pitch, I’d tune in to a shopping network. more

  • Strong sometimes

    Lots of potential and a great host usually but there are too many episodes (most recent included) where he brings on someone who does not know how to debate for a debate. Great example is that Connor keeps taking air time. It really ruins the quality and feels like a high school debate being recorded as he talks down to people and tries to “establish” hypothetical decision points. Go back to the expert discussions and depth over clickbait and you’ll have a great show.

    A clear labour of love, highly technical and fun, and quite different to many out there.
