  • Get to the point

    The information on this program is useful. The guests usually have insightful suggestions and experiences worth learning about. But the hosts are difficult to listen to their “intro“ Before they talk to a guest is mindless banter that is getting more obnoxious. This takes up more than a fourth of the shows time. I wish they would just get to the point.

  • Overall good podcast

    The show is good in my opinion. I’m huge in cybersecurity and a lot of episodes touch on that. But the two big things that I’m not a fan of is that Adam begs like a dog at least 3 times an episode for you to rate 5 stars and leave a review, which I’m doing one of those things. And that at least 7-8 times an episode, either the hosts or a quest will stop talking and random music will play for at least 20-25 seconds EVERY time before going back to them talking.

  • I dont know if it's just the accents but this is like listening to a group of imbeciles trying to get through a conversation and failing repeatedly. The fact that they sound so superior is just weird.
