[Laughs] Honestly, that’s a lot of the interaction I get. I get a good chunk of people saying hey, ‘I love the show, it’s great, that happened to me’ or whatever, and then I get a really large amount of people saying ‘I can’t watch your show, it’s too painful. It’s like all my painful memories of being an entrepreneur are brought up in your show and therefore I can’t watch it’.
Thomas Middleditch
