I always learn something

They cover all topics and they give good explanations and lead you in the right direction. I love to listen to their conversations and I would not change a thing. You all are the best!!

Show use to be good

I use to listen the show every week years ago when they provide you more often with more valuable information before the show introduced the lady that talks way too much about herself and stories that don’t add too much value sometimes and I don’t appreciate that she kind interrupt the hosts frequently. Nothing wrong with her in the show just I wish she could let folks finish their sentences and she takes too much time of the program to herself.
