Great podcast. Almost makes me want to join you guys in game. Now quit asking for reviews haha.
Would listen to again.
Just less Macho man please.
Great perspective / good information density
I like this podcast as it is from a different perspective than the other Eve podcasts. Also as a busy person I appreciate the high signal to noise ratio. Keep it up!
