Love it

These guys really embody the best of Sanderson

Biggest Beech ,

Amazing: Skip the first 5 minutes

Great podcast, I enjoy that they are opinionated, i do disagree on occasion but that’s part of the fun. The right amount of intelligence, with enough people to come on and bring some realism to it all. Show and tell on this audio only format is obnoxious especially when it takes 5-15 minutes. Keep up the great work!
