  • At 17.33 he said ”a third to a half” at 17.51 he said ”1 in 3 to 1 in 5”. A half is actually 2.5 in 5, so was HE exaggerating when he said that?

  • Out of context intro

    Do you realize people listen to many podcasts, so when you introduce your show mid sentence, out of context, people think there show skipped or some other bug. This trend needs to end. Can’t you “smart” people put in more effort or come up with something original.
