Entertaining and funny
Bedletter does his best to bring us the latest falcons news. I like the cheesy production of this podcast. It sounds like he’s in the hallway coat closet. And he does his best to keep the noise down. But that rawness is what makes this fun. Keep up the great work.

The best Falcons podcast!
D-Led does a great job of being fair and honest, while also looking at things from the Dirty Bird fans' point of view. He also has great nuggets from and about the opposition. The Bow Tie Chronicles is like my private pre-game show during the fall on Sunday mornings during my long run on the Silver Comet Trail. I look forward to it every week!
Great podcast, but...
Love the podcast overall. Always informative, however the audio quality is really poor at times. Listening to it in the car the volume tends to be all over the place, especially the player interviews.
