UPDATE, 20 August 2018: I have a more mature outlook on this podcast now that I have listened to every episode; been a minor contributor; and helped get these guys their first sponsor. Still a solid performer in its category, despite slipping back to more irregular episode releases (and by irregular, I mean 'normal'). I currently rate GCP as 'HOLD'.
ORIGINAL REVIEW, 27 February 2015: Not only is this the best Gut Check Podcast that has been done, it is the most. Nothing surpasses it in quality and quantity. Ted and Zach thoughtfully and humorously enrich the podcast series with all of the things that so many people crave: objective energy drink analysis, period drama expose, and reviews of reviews (which is ironic, because I’m in the middle of writing one right now). Seriously, even if the podcast is like 18 minutes long, it feels like 45 because the content is so rich. If the Gut Check Podcast were a stock, it would be a ‘buy’—its value can only go up.
Disclosure: I have recently purchased two titles from Gut Check Press and have read nearly all of the bonus content available on their website. Now, I know something about cigar smoking, thanks to Gut Check. More importantly, since it pertains to this disclosure, I also feel a close connection with one Chaz Marriot, a very gifted and talented writer and whom, I am certain, we will hear about more and more in the days and years ahead. I was misdiagnosed as gifted and talented when I was in the 4th grade. I am only on page 16, but from the artwork and what I’ve already read, I believe that Chaz is going to help me make a very healthy comeback from my 5th grade ‘year on the ropes’ (as I call it). So, in conclusion, I just felt compelled to inform potential and actual Gut Check Podcast listeners that, although I haven’t been paid for an endorsement in cash, I sort of feel like they have paid me with dense content and I sense that I might eventually be influenced toward major support of Gut Check Press. So, maybe I am developing a bias.
