Long intro

Awesome stories, I’m a RLRC fan so naturally I want to listen to anything Woody is in. I have a bit of a hard time listening to Jim’s voice, just not a podcast/radio voice for me. The introduction is very long and could be a little shorter. The stories are great and so are the songs. Also, if you don’t want to listen to the many ads, become a CHASE member.

I can’t stop listening!

Y’all are awesome! I’ve always stopped and learned what I could about Angola but you never get anything first hand like y’all tell it! Thank you!
