So Good!

You really can’t underestimate the value of good editing, structure, and humor. This podcast is just so well done that it doesn’t matter what they’re talking about, it’s good! It just makes it that much better that they make EVERYTHING interesting.
And the cheat sheets? The transcription? The additional content?! Fantastic all around!
