Too much interrupting!

Constant interruptions by the host really really make this podcast hard to listen to.

Hard to listen to

I could hardly listen to episode 21 as the interviewer kept interrupting her. It was so rude and took away from the message.

Trey Anderson dos ,

Concise and informative!

A great quick update on SDF. Good tips about the material for those, like myself, that have recently started using it. 👌
