Love the segments and variety
Really love the variety of content and segments with different guests. Go Hawks.
Decent - Voice needs improvement
Content can be very good at times, mostly when interviewing someone. The new guy John Steppe (sp?) doesn’t bring any new insight and has a terrible voice for podcasting, it sounds like a parody someone would perform of a terrible lame voice.
Top tier hawk pod
I was disappointed by the departure of the previous hosts, however I’m really excited with the new direction of the podcast. Leah has taken over hosting incredibly well and now this has sneakily become one of my favorite Hawkeye podcasts. Keep up the good work.
