My Thoughts: Joe did a solo Twitter Q&A podcast but barely answers any questions. He starts to answer questions and then goes off on a tangent and meanders from one topic to another. For instance, he answers a question about doing a Doom podcast and somehow winds up talking about two BJJ competitors grappling in Brazil.
