I've been listening to B.A since its inception, not weekly but definitely more than happy to plug in & listen for a few hours (long drives!) when I can. Seriously this show just keeps giving & giving! it's fantastic to hear people talk about their lives, their stuff.. and current day issues that affect life now (I.e the pandemic of our lives!).. Chris you've nailed this show bc you like folks & the weird stuff of our lives 👌 greetings from Australia!
