Gave it a second listen

At first I did not like this podcast but came back and listened to more recent episodes including the most recent about Trumps book end enjoyed these episodes much more. If you don’t enjoy the early episodes skip ahead and give it another try. Looking forward to the Biden episode and whatever follows.

Great Podcast

I enjoy listening and learning from these podcasts as I go on walks or mow the lawn. He reviews books that I otherwise would not read and I glean insight and wisdom from the reviews. Very nuanced and enjoyable for me. Thanks for doing these.
