This guy writes like a dream, but I've heard mixed reviews about this latest book. I will set aside some time to listen to the pod.

Good conversation. As I look at my own evolving streaming habits, I can see that I’m going to move towards the least-expensive-for-me tiers of the increasingly something-for-everyone streamers and then spend my leftover pennies on streamers that have more of what *I* want and get it without ads. Sound like a familiar history? Give it a half a decade! And maybe that’s where the annoying Amazon sub-subscriptions are going.
