Great show

I love this podcast, there is so much great info and bits I’ve never heard of it. The guests are great and it’s surprising how good their chemistry is.

Keep it up Jeff!! And remember that the same people complaining about the “rats” are the same people who subscribe to their YouTube channels.

Please do some Detroit mob stories,

Love from Windsor Ontario
