Boots Amick ,

Best Podcast about Microsoft - Thank you!!!!

I came back to leave a rave review and realized I had already left one singing your praises. Wish I could give it six stars. Im a relatively new user and Greg breaks it down where I can understand it. I’ve seen your blog online but and thrilled you’re doing a podcast! It’s so great to be able to learn while I drive!

Thanks.
