Math Hoffa, Mr. Mecc, Punch, Daylyt, and Rock talk about something that has permitted the industry for decades on Math Hoffa’s ‘Expert Opinion’ podcast that is the disconnect between the established industry vets (from all aspects) and the newbies. Mecc makes some valid and interesting points on the subject.
