Renewed my love for the game
I’m trying not to make this sound too soppy but the NLU podcast has genuinely renewed my love of golf and made it fun again. Between this podcast, their videos on YouTube and other podcasts they produce I’ve noticed so much more depth to golf than I did previously.
Thanks for reminding me of how great the game can be everyone.
Speak up, TC!
I am always interested in what they have to say, but you can only hear 75% of the podcast. Either TC’s mic is too low or he’s not speaking loud enough. I listen to podcasts while I am driving, so maybe this issue doesn’t happen to those using headphones. But I have no issues hearing any of the other personalities or guests on this show, or any of the other shows I listen to on my commute. Consistent issue across many episodes, can’t believe a show with such a great following hasn’t addressed this production issue.
The NLU crew is the best. Look forward to everything they give us.
