Worth your time

I have subscribed from the beginning of this podcast. There is always an abundance of useful information contained in each episode. As with most of us, the last thing I need on my iphone is another useless icon. Buddy helps me to decide if I really want to install this or that. It’s hard to cut through all the options. This podcast helps to do that.
Thanks Buddy! 👍
