Martin you sound a bit surprised and conufused as to why a marketing man is full of shit. Don't let comparison and hero worship get to you.

I do admire Metas. Opposite to the vast majority of the population who resent them.

Scott Adams has plenty of unique insight, I still listen fairly often but I find myself more and more contentious with him these days. I agree that he plays the middle-of-the-road card too frequently, confidently stroking his own ego from an ivory tower while refusing to take a stand, but usually it's the positions he takes with his trademark brand of smug persuasion, overlooking obvious counterpoints to his arguments, that annoys me. For the most part he tries to stay objective and play it straight though, and he puts out content every morning so it's hard not to listen when I'm at work doing paperwork. I rarely make it all the way through

Also for a guy that brags so often about having fuck-you money, you'd think he could invest in a proper microphone and sound set-up
