Love this podcast. Has great explanation and it’s easy to understand. Narrators do a great job. Spotify is a good move.

Too bad

So sorry to hear you are moving to Spotify. I don’t like their platform, Apple makes it easier to find what I’m looking for.
Like the podcast but won’t be following to Spotify.
