Great Podcast!!!

This is a great podcast!! I’ve started it really late but can not stop listening. I’ve been thinking for years of starting my own comic shop and listening to Jason has really inspired me. I recommen this to any comic book lover no matter if ur a huge collector, a comic book store owner, or just a huge fan. There’s something for every one. I just can’t say enough things about jason and his podcast. I’m so happy I found it.

Thanks for being my inspiration and I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels that way.

Mike Love

Ps— I just wish I would have found this earlier because I never got the chance to win any of the awesome stuff that Jsson gave away.
