Give the people what they want!

Great podcast with a good mix of information and entertainment. I think I speak for more than myself when I say we need a Joey and Cal head to head match on the links! Keep up the good work.

True review

I listen to this podcast on the way home and haven’t missed an episode and have re listened to some also. Best part is the off topic parts of the episode!
