The real deal!

Michael is the real deal when it comes to DIY podcasting. Amazing content. Great questions. Professional work all around. Amazing podcast based in Iowa!

Pocket warrior ,

Could be so much better

Just report the facts, and please leave your political leanings out of business updates. The host is overtly left leaning, which in itself is fine, but he lets that ruin what should simply be the facts by spinning everything against the president.

Emily in Iowa ,

Interesting local perspective!

Michael asks great questions and it's great to hear about local work
