Thanks for the link.

It's too bad this wasn't a panel discussion. I certainly could have helped clarify some of the mileage situations and assumptions discussed in the final hour that may have changed the answers given by the Rabonim.

Clearly he wanted to argue about selling points with me, but it wasn't an argument I wanted to enter, nor was it one that I had to enter as I've never advocated selling points.

Fantastic job!

It's officially a halacha based podcast his spin will always be in that direction. That's definitely why he wanted to talk about selling points. To someone who's not involved, the travel and cash back isn't at all what comes to mind, rather "isn't the whole point to sell the points?"...

Pretty good defending the whole price mistake debate, it's somewhat nuanced and not clear cut. It sounded like he wanted simple straight forward guidelines with reasoning.

In regards to a panel, almost every week it's an issue, depending who he speaks to in what order, he'll bring up arguments that someone made and allow the later person to comment without ever getting a response from the original person..

Was there any part that he edited?

@Dan hit it out of the park.
When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".

Wow, thanks guys!

It's funny, I didn't feel great about either of these interviews. I guess I'm just used to editing posts until I'm happy with it. Don't have that luxury on the air.

Didn't listen to the entire podcast, but from what I heard I really didn't know where the "I say um too much comment" came from.  Well spoken.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I course corrected from what I heard on the Zev Brenner panel.

I think you did a great job on the podcast.

I noticed that both Brenner and Lichtenstein asked you at the end to ďtell us a good dealĒ. Either this is sarcasm or they just donít understand how a deal works. Deals arenít static. They come and go. Sometimes every day, sometimes every few hours or less. You could throw in a plug there to sign up for twitter/text notifications so that they donít miss it.
