Great podcast, just wish the episode times were more consistent

So the title is pretty much my only gripe. It’s a great podcast, and Im glad I found it, but I wish there was some consistency with the episode times. Episodes can range anywhere from 18 min to 59 min which is too much of a gap and doesn’t give listeners an average range of what to expect the length of an episode to be. Either make them all 18-20 min min long or make them all 50-59 min long but 18-59 min is too inconsistent.
