Applause & guest request

Excellent podcast! Great stories and I love all the ball busting you guys do with each other and guest. I laughed out loud many times while listening. This is a good podcast for all listeners, even if your not a MOS.

You guys should get someone on from NYPD’s ACIS (Animal Cruelty Investigation Squad). I feel this is a forgotten department.

Thanks for all the great episodes and keep them coming!
