Great job Joe!

I just found this podcast and listened to all available episodes in two afternoons! It brought back a ton of great memories from stories I’ve heard you tell over the years.

Joe, you’ve always been a good friend and my mentor in this undercover thing we love so much. Take care and keep telling the stories from your rich and unique history! Steve D.
