It’s a fun listen

It’s a fun quick listen. Very informative for what it is. Great research by Adam. But it doesn't dish out new episodes very often and the episodes are very very short. Would love to see them released more often and to be longer! Theres could be so much more substance and lots to cover to do it with.
