A fun listen!

Tom is a wealth of information and a joy to listen to. Thanks for teaching me things that I wasn’t aware I wanted to know! Also, I call dibs on Tom if I’m ever on a trivia show and need to phone a friend.

Love this!!!

I enjoy every minute. I am anxious to hear Tom explain some of the finer sports to Nick, like Hacky Sack and corn hole. No sport seems too obscure. More AZ beer though.
