Really enjoy the variety of guest and stories. Also look forward to the soaring master segments. It makes my day when a new episode shows up in my feed.

Great podcast!

I’m an airline pilot with a glider back ground. I haven’t flown a glider in almost 20 years. This podcast has really brought me back and has me considering get back involved with the SSA.
