Cheers on your show Kathy!
Lots of content here on Kathy's show! Kudos and we look forward to your new episodes!
I really enjoy listening to the weekly updates on my morning walk though the neighborhood. These short podcasts allow me to get a high level overview on what’s happening in the market and what to plan for. Been listening for over a year and always look forward to the next podcast!
Good content but blog rarely up to date and occasional episode streaming issues
Good content overall but I have found the blog is not updated. The blog provides episode details, facts & resources for a given episode and after listening and I check the blog to get the link, etc. - the entire episode just isn’t listed yet. I’m assuming I listen within 1-12hours of episode release most of the time. Also sometimes I just have to skip episodes entirely as it won’t download or stream.
