When I listen to podcasts, I’m looking for the hosts to understand the material and provide me with their opinions on the matter. Unfortunately Steve has decided that that’s too much effort and now spends his time just reading others reports or press releases to the audience. EDIT: someone suggested playing this episode at 1.5x. OMG does it make it so much better.
