Awesome, also I have an idea for the micro-face merch

An amazing podcast

Consistently great episodes, reruns can be a bit annoying sometimes but I get that you guys need time to work on new content, i would suggest taking podcasts from before 2017 to use as reruns as most services no longer store those older ones in their cloud anymore

The cutting in on experts can sometimes seem rude if it doesn’t happen during a pause in the conversation, but it does help make the interviews more interesting

And take all my advice (and the advice of other reviewers) with a grain of salt, you are the journalists after all!
