These guys are down to earth, intelligent and relatable. They have a wealth of experience in the corporate world but also understand that people want to be treated as individuals and need fulfillment and dignity, especially over age 50.
Furthermore, they put a lot of effort into the audio quality. It’s top notch whereas so many podcasts have such poor production value that they are ultimately unlistenable. I hope they continue and build their audience as they as definitely sponsor worthy.
They are both pretty conservative politically but their affable personalities make it easy to digest. I’m liberal all the way but still find the career related content to be solid advice.

I have watched since the beginning and I now have my wife Christina asking if the next episode is ready. I don’t agree with everything they talk about but what they do is promote a conversation that allows you to see different sides. There knowledge base is vast and what they might not know they can easily get on the fly, I love to hear about there life’s ups and downs. I feel like I am in the room listening to them banter back and forth.
If you haven’t been following start. Well worth the time.
Thank you for helping me become a smarter and better human being

Metaphysical: Death in the family. Barry and Lisa attend wake for her cousin Michael, who died right before retiring at the age of 57. We learn about his life of redemption and his commitment to giving back. We share Lisa’s memorialization of him, which leads us to the often asked question: Why do good people often die so young? How can life, God, be so unfair?

Current Events: The war on free speech runs deep. Barry gets censored on Quora again answering the question, “Are there any black conservatives out there who aren’t sellouts?”

Merle discusses how covid masks are infringing on our freedoms and development of children – as California ultra-strict mandates affect all interactions outside as well as inside and people are jumping on shaming others.

The observance of labeling people “Science Denyer“. Yet another label to apply to people that have an opposing view on global warming or covid-19.

The election: 6 weeks from now, will we see even more violence?

Daily Mail daily race baiting article: “Nineteen families buy 97 acres of land in Georgia to create black-only ‘safe space’ town called Freedom – but whites who are ‘pro-African American’ can apply to live there.  ––>

On the lighter side: Tahlequah the orca whale  is a mother again after famously mourning her dead calf. In 2018, the killer whale touched hearts everywhere during her “tour of grief.” – seen carrying her dead calf on her head for 17 days over a distance of about 1,000 miles off coast of Washington and British Columbia – ––>
