Not FBI Surveillance ,

Like Sitting With Friends

Great podcast to listen to, its like sitting with a friend, having fun discussions. I find myself interacting with the James and his guests, laughing and giving my own opinions. In a time when the world seems to be in a bad place, its nice to find a podcast you can connect with other people talking about not serious topics and find some interesting facts.

A really fun listen!

“Off the Set” entertains with a down-to-earth discussion and commentary about anything. I’ve enjoyed these early episodes and “getting to know” James Tully off the set. He reminds me of a cooler, modern version of Vincent Reed from the days when the CWU was in its hay day.
