Colorado Springs is Awesome!!!

Love the guests and the topics covered. It's engaging and relavant and I love that. For the record, I was wasn't sure about the sound board, and still can't decide if its grown on me yet. Either way, keep up the good work guys!!

Love this podcast

As city government goes, this is pretty good. It’s informative and entertaining. It’s nice to hear directly from some of the people who work in government. I hope you guys will take suggestions of topics and people we want to hear from.

Great show, ruined with sound board

Great podcast, good topics and hosts, a perfect balance of serious and fun. Only complaint is the sound effects can be jarring. I typically listen to podcasts before bed and the blaring alarm noises come with little warning.
