Great Source of Info
Thank you so much for your episode on water treatment. There is so much misinformation out there about making water safe for drinking. I nearly dropped a couple hundred bucks on a filter but am opting for a sand filter and tablets instead.
Great Podcast but....
Awesome source of information but please fix your Audio.
Really good show
This is one of the best outdoor podcasts I've come across.
