Great, Honest Podcast

Great podcast Sept 9, 2022 instructors discussing classes and suggestions. It was a very honest, relevant discussion. I like the way Craig doesn’t hijack his guests and let’s them speak out. He took suggestions for future classes and subjects to add to existing courses. The best way to improve one’s curriculum is to get feedback from students and staff, Craig I’d doing that. Always pertinent worthwhile information neigh discussed. Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss anything!

Could it get any better?

After I came across your YouTube videos this time last year. Then I stumbled onto the the Survival Show Podcast. Loved everyone of those episodes but really enjoyed the manly mussings. Then Eureka!!! I feel as if I hit the mother load. After I had just finished two of your books and was looking for more knowledge and application. Bam..Here it is the podcast with Craig and Tracey. Keep it up fellas. Hope to make it to a training class this year! manuyank
