Informative & Well Rounded
The podcast provides lot of valuable information for and cover a range of topics that everyone can enjoy.
Ep. 07: Predator Hunting with Jeff Thomason is my favorite episode so far. It covered a wide range of topics and I thought they did a great job of including information for both novices and experts alike.
