The best

Y’all are the best. Please keep doing exactly what you’re doing. I love all your explanations and insights. You are getting me through shelter in place in Montana.

Too in-depth??

First this podcast is very interesting and I can definitely see myself getting wrapped up into it. But I feel like it’s being tooo over explained. They read one line then discuss it for a good several minutes. To the point that I forget where we even were in the story.
