Great so far

This is the kind of podcast about Columbus I've been wanting. Thank you and keep it up.

It is spelled COLUMBUS!

I find it disappointing and frankly insulting that the Dispatch and Gatehouse decided that Columbus was not good enough. Using this awful nickname in the title of the series and in this podcast is an insult to all of us who have made Columbus great.
