Thank You Penguin Magic GREAT Podcast!
The team at Penguin does EVERYTHING right! From superior customer service to all the “extras” they provide. The Penguin Magic Podcast is no exception. Great content, well structured and the producers allow for conversation that on product/content that Penguin Magic does not carry. Very refreshing! The 5 in 5 segments are outstanding and I (after 35 years) find new nuggets of gold. Great show, great job! Highly recommend!
REALLY enjoying The Penguin Magic podcast. Strong content / Well produced.
Keep up the good work & THANKS! -Doug Conn
