A Great Find - Just Listen To Grow

So happy I found Sharky to listen to on my slow jogs. I always learn something from the podcasts. Plus, Sharky is entertaining and Fun to Listen To! Give Sharky a Try. You will enjoy the time and learn!

Mr FTP ,

Go back to the “no name photo show”

The no name show was much more interesting. A LOT less commercials also

Kutshers! ,

Most annoying voice in podcasting

If you like the male version of a valley girl, you will love this. Honestly, the arrogance and annoying voice tone and inflections ruins this podcast.
