Tremendous Listen!

Well-produced and informative aviation podcast with a “Fireside Chat” feel. Not only a great listen, but a great way to stay on top of aviation trends during these trying times. The hosts and guests know their craft and the sound quality is great. Enough great stuff to make me tune out the Celine Dion bumper music...:D
