Incredible

This is something I never knew I needed and it’s been executed perfectly!!! I listened to 6 episodes back to back in a matter of hours ! Thanks for real life commentary and thought provoking topics !

Stitch Jones ,

These are too short

There has to be hours of content per each episode that was published. There are so many people listed in the credits of each of these episodes and we barely hear from any of them. This show is edited very well but I feel there are so many opinions and ideas in these discussions that are left out of these discussions that listeners would love to hear.
