Love this podcast - except for the one from May 27. That lady was unbearable to listen to. Good points presented in a grating way. Poor Chuck, I felt for you.

Enjoy the guests

I like Chuck’s guests and usually like the interviews I just wish Chuck could let guests finish their answers before jumping in and talking over them. This is worse with the delays caused by remote interviews. I wish Chuck could find a room in his house where he can close his door. Most weeks we get the background noise of his wife and kids. This week we got the vacuum cleaner. Ponderous, man, ponderous.
