I cannot believe how good Rich is, how he makes the conversation flow, his questions, how he gets his guests to open up. Really good listen and great presenter!
Episode 13... wow!
Having grown up with Danny on my TV screen, it’s great to see him back even though it’s on the podcast.
Obviously Danny is a very private guy, but I always love listening to him as well as his team and tickly admire the fact that he feel a business out of something he loves which I can massively relate to. Most importantly, as an average angler who goes fishing partly just to get out there, but also of course to catch fish, it’s great to hear Danny‘s perspective on all elements of carp fishing and not just the catching side of things.
Keep it up Danny, it’s never really mattered to me what other people have said about you or your company, I’ve always loved what you do
New Podcast man
