Love It!

Such a joy! Love everything about this! Can't wait to dive into the entire catalog!

Dan GW ,

Keep the politics out of it. Unsubscribed

Used to love this podcast. Now it’s political. Bye

poutbadtopblue ,

Like it at the beginning

I preferred it when the episodes were full hour + long episodes. Now they are cut up into little episode chunks and it looses something in the precoces.
