Hooked!

I am only 15 episodes in playing catch-up and am hooked! I find myself constantly stopping and rewinding because taking in the information provided by these gentlemen is like drinking from a fire hose! I love it!

Fun

Great times listening to these three guys. They know a lot and are hilarious. Bill is a good host, Jim knows a lot and so does Alex. Great trio.
