Came for the Strang interviews

I found both to be excellent. Haven’t delved into the rest yet, but I will.

Henniferjunter ,

So good!

I love the interviews! They a relevant and cot some topics others don't touch upon. Definitely one of the first podcast I look to see if a new episode has come out!

VernontheIII ,

Great conversation

Love flipping this podcast on and just listening to the conversation. It's enjoyable, entertaining and I often learn something new. Love the conversations around craft beer, family, fears, God and life. Pull up a bar stool, pop one open and give it a try.
