I was a Guest, it was so enjoyable and easy.

I was an actual previous guest on FIA podcast. Justin and the studio were clean, cool, relaxed and fun. The 50 minutes or blew on by. I recommend the Friends in Austin podcast. The “unicorn and Austin politics” session.

Changed my life

Before listening to this podcast, I was hungry, homeless, friendless and penniless. After listening to the dulcet tones of Dave Perry, I have now won many friends and influence, and have experienced riches and a fullness of body and spirit beyond my wildest dreams. Two thumbs up!
