Editing Issues

This is a good podcast that does a thorough job covering the Gators. Dave releases more episodes than most podcasts. The ones with Will Miles are the best. On his own, Dave tends to ramble on and repeat himself. They also don’t do a good job editing the episodes.

Thanks

Thank you for the coverage, but I would appreciate the pace being a bit quicker. It often feels like Dave is filling time. And the sprinkle of MAGA energy on Dave’s other socials gives an off-putting alt-reality vibe I refuse to support.
