Episode 57 is Possibly the Best Dog Podcast Ever

Episode 57 is very interesting and being an owner of an Epagneul Breton I found it particularly intriguing. This explains many things on the matter of pointing dogs in America

Great podcast

Very well produced. No long intro begging for Patreon subscriptions or peddling sponsor products.
Tony seeks out very interesting guests and lets them talk.

Has Potential

This podcast would be get 5 stars if Tony let the guest get a word in. Every time he ask them a question, he talks for another 2-3 minutes before he takes a breath and lets the interviewee answer.
