Love these dudes

Found this podcast from the Sawbones. Tommy is an absolute joy to listen to. Michael is the most easy going “teacher” I’ve ever heard. Helpful topics and not too political preachy. I find myself giggling, or something snorting over what I hear. Good job, dudes.

Very informative

This podcast is super informative from
The legal and layman’s perspective. Tommy’s train stories taught me a great deal about how the railroad industry works.
