Love

I’ve just started listening to Jonathan’s podcast and am sold, 5+ stars, big fan. I’ve only heard 2 minutes and 45 seconds of the first episode with Michael Steele in 2016 so far and am drawn to the straight talking, truth telling, engaging dialogue. Refreshing to say the least. Jonathan’s a star xo
