Fix the fricking audio already!!

Annoying enough to hear one telephone voice, but the host calls is too for whatever reason. Bad audio, hard to follow. Not even sure who the guy is who announces the show - he just disappears. Blecht

Tony’s cool, miss Cordie

I miss Cordie. His quest for knowledge and humility really made the show a must listen. Tony’s grizzled vet story is good, I’ve learned some bits and tricks from his conversations…
In any event I’m still a listener. Hope you’re good Cordie!
