The best podcast about London Ontario

OK there aren’t many podcasts about #LdnOnt, but we’re lucky that this one is so dang good. London has a weird inferiority complex sometimes, but this podcast shows that we are superior in many, many things, including the podcast itself. Nicely done.

Outstanding!

Very, very well done. Not only am I looking forward to the content, but I have to compliment your team on the production value and attention to detail on the technical side of the production. In addition to the valuable and informative content, the overall production of this podcast makes it that much more engaging. Keep up the excellent work!
