Karen is brilliant!!!

I’ve been listening to this show for years, and Karen's understanding of the game is great. She adds something special to this pod. Don’t let her go! She knows her stuff!!

Karen is unlistenable

A good show, so capably hosted by Kelly Cates, that is frequently ruined by nails-on-a-chalkboard Karen Carney

Good insight & honest information. PS I love the Euro Show & the 72+ shows.
