First rate

Like listening to an old friend

QuennevilleA ,

Overall great

The show is great, however, one thing, the host often rushes a bit and wants to speak so fast that he is repeadetly repeating words. Wha wha wha what was it like at this academy. Ho ho ho how did you manage to get this good. Etc. But besides this, A1 podcast!!
