Long time listener, first time reviewer
Favorite podcast, has gotten me through countless long days at work!
I found out about this podcast through KP’s standup special. My fiancé is Tina searls. She met KP when he was in the navy with our friend Bruce Caneup. She and I were watching the special, when he mentioned the history podcast, I had to see how good it was. I have to say that I am hooked! Love the lessons that I’m learning. Keep up the good work guys!
