Constant listener...

... but why is it taking so long for the weekly podcast to get online on Apple podcasts. It’s not even there by Friday morning, but recorded well before that. Or do I have that wrong? Otherwise 5 stars +
In any case, as a sidelight, been pretty cool over the past 4 years or so to tag along with the two guys as they progress through young adulthood!

Poor audio week of 4/5/21

Zac’s audio is all messed up, poor quality. Every time he breaths is sounds like he is gasping for air or hitting a vape.

Mix of common Apple News and blabbing

This podcast would be a lot shorter and easier to listen to if the blabbing and going off track would be kept to a minimum. Plus, I can’t stand the accent. Sorry 🤷🏼‍♂️
