Informative perspective

I appreciate what Greg does on this show. I’ve learned a lot about the industry and the RV lifestyle by listening. Like several other reviewers, I could use a little less political bloviating, esp. as Greg’s views generally don’t comport with my own. Maybe it’s a generational thing, but I suspect that many younger listeners, that new generation of RVers that Greg rightly refers to as the future of the industry, will also be turned off by the politics. Overall, I enjoy the show and am grateful for Greg’s perspective.

Horrible

This talent-less guy (Greg) does for a living what any elementary school aged child could do, comb the Internet for RV related news and then post those links to his website. He delivers this podcast with the same lack of talent. Because of this "job" he created for himself, he "thinks" he's an expert about the RV industry. What a joke. From his own words, he has only owned ONE RV in his life, and he bought it when it was over a decade old. This podcast is not worth your time whether you're in the industry or a consumer. Beware of a few out there like him that have no REAL expertise in the RV industry, yet try to pass themselves off as experts.

Read more

We discuss the highlights of Maxwell’s book “Everyone Communicates, Few Connect.” Communicating can’t be about us and our needs. We need to focus on the people we are talking to.
