Ares momma ,

Please keep doing your current format

Love your show!! It is story telling at its best. What has storytelling been in the past, but stories told around a common hearth or fire. No fact checks ever being done. Just good old stories being told and past on. Keep up the great work.

The way I hear it.

In my personal and honest opinion it is never a waste of time listening to Mike pontificate, even as he sometimes meanders to his ultimate point. Keep up the good work!

Bill on the go ,

Glad to hear...

...you will keep doing the podcast. All the best, Mike.
