Very informative

Amazing podcast on silencers. Great and science based way to learn more about silencers. Glad this is out there!

Informative and thoughtful but meandering

I love what Jay does and his content. However, it’s so drawn out and meandering. These podcasts could be cut by 30%. Sure, he has a set plan for each episode, but wow does it take forever to get through each point. If Jay were more succinct this would be a 5 star podcast.

Silencer nerd heaven

This is the podcast to follow religiously if you want to know more about cans than you thought possible. Jay is pushing (dragging might be a better term) the industry forward with Pew Science, and this podcast is mandatory supporting material imo. Keep up the good work brother!
