Claims to be factual based not opinion but...

I like the info provided and the comfortable atmosphere that’s created however, in the very beginning the host goes off about he is fact based and not opinion based then proceeds to give tips based on things that are “probably” bad and a “possible” a risk. If you’re using words like “probably,” you’re not talking facts; that’s an opinion.

Look elsewhere for chicken info…

Not worth the time listening to his podcast.
If you can get past the poor audio, loads of ads,and the rambling- the content at the end of the tunnel is not worth it. Handfuls if relevant information buried in biased and subjective statements. I listened to three different episodes from different times in the podcast and gave up. Even the vet that was featured didn’t speak well and used generalized statements.
If you want useful and validated information I recommend Coffee With The Chicken Ladies.

I really want to like your podcast, but

I really want to like this podcast, but the rabbit holes/off topic discussions make this almost impossible to focus on. Ugh!!! Stay on topic! Improve your audio!
