@ahmed_basim ,

Respect

Thank you for this great show

Barleycorns ,

Enjoyable listening experience

I’ve listened regularly for 2 years and look forward to every podcast. Good job Mr. Hagedorn! I have wondered whether a book of stories I loved as a young man might translate well to your format. It’s called The Bears of Blue River by Charles Major. Check it out. Keep the stories coming.

Podcast reveiw ,

Great! Loving all of your shows!

First off, I would just like to thank you Mr.Hagadorn! Thank you for your many wonderful, and highly enjoyable podcasts. I love each and everyone of your shows. I do know that the advertisement issue has been addressed by other viewers, but needless to say they were not discreet in their dislike of the many ads throughout the show. Personally I understand that these companies fund you, meaning that you must promote their names, and products. Yet the progressive ads are getting to be a bit much. Before every episode I get three of the progressive advertisements. I would really appreciate if you could simply cut down on the amount of ads in each show? Thank you so much, no hate just love and good vibes!
