Found this because another golf podcast mentioned it. It is great. I have listened to 12 episodes already. Claude does a great job with the guest and with the Q&A at the end.
Great pod. The intro music choice sounds like soft core porn music though. “Mm ts ch ts mm ts ch ts”
I thoroughly enjoy this podcast
