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!
Glad to hear...
...you will keep doing the podcast. All the best, Mike.
