Very good

I enjoy this podcast and look forward to each new episode. The team does a great a job reporting S.C. news and providing commentary and humor. I am a news junkie and most of what they report I have heard but their insight is what makes this informative. I know doing 3 cast per week is daunting but during DoC (Days of Covid) it is important

Great Work keeping us SC folk informed during these crazy times

I have been listening to you for awhile. You make local issues quite entertaining. But since you’ve gone to 3 pods a week, I just don’t want to miss a single one. I actually feel a little better hearing the theme song because I know I’m going to hear what’s really going on. I have referred your show to several. Keep up the good work!
