Mr. Karl is the best!

I just recently started to listen to Mr Karl’s podcasts, though one factor stumped me, why is he not creating more? Well I did some research on one afternoon. He is a intelligent man, who is hard working and busy. It is time that we acknowledge him and feel sympathy for our Dr. Karl.
