Interesting podcasts

Broadband

Steve, The information on your podcast is very useful. I am not sure how to send in my comments and suggestions, except to enter them here. Would you consider a show that updates and explains where the U.S. is with respect to rural broadband connectivity, including reverse auctions and 5G?
