Only one small problem . . .

I haven’t missed an episode yet!

Pat, could you please try control your laughter a bit? Laughing so hard after a guest says something mildly amusing, is a bit cringe worthy.

Thanks for all the knowledge though.

Go Bears!!

Jimmyy201 ,

Good podcast. But the same episode played 2,3, sometimes 4 times in each download is rough.

Love the podcast. But downloading 2 hour podcasts that are actually 30 minutes is bad.

I don’t know if it’s a glitch on your end or intended to lengthen the podcast length. But it needs fixed please.

cubbyfan4ever ,

Content good. But fix the glitch!

I have an old phone without much memory and having 3-4 repeat shows on one episode is super annoying. FIX IT! Otherwise, the content is really good especially with shows featuring Courtney. She’s one of the best NFL beat reporters.
