Great podcast

It’s a great podcast with in depth stories and good information I don’t know how people can moan about the adds though it’s a free podcast and he needs to make money if you’d prefer he could charge you with no adds but the majority of people don’t care you just have to tap +30 seconds twice their not even that long

gazatronn ,

Awesome!

Excellent content. Well written and presented. Nice mixture of era’s so there should be episodes that are new to most people and others that give extra insight to more recent op’s.
Easily 5 stars. Looking forward to season 2. 🤞
