Makes me want to play Persimmons and Balatas

What a great listen. I have so much appreciation and understanding of these legends when I hear their stories. Mike is great and I am glad he is there, but that Bruce Devlin does a Podcast at age 83, and is sharper than I am at half his age is inspiring.

Good Show

Love the hosts. They are excellent. Don’t understand the uploads though. They re-upload old episodes again and again but some they never upload the second part. For instance where is the second part for the interview with Padraig Harrington? Overall grateful for this pod.
