Customer ReviewsSee All
I look forward to this podcast each week. Not only is it informative, but it's fun. It's like sitting with humorous friends discussing curling. You seem very approachable and you ask good questions. The recent podcast with Laura Walker was particularly good and the 60-second rundown after Slam events is wonderful. Keep up the good work.
I love the topics, and the insights. The special guests also really add to the podcasts. I both have laughed and cried while listening. Thank you!
