One of your best yet.

Your podcast with Greg Gard was definitely one of my favorite, right up there with Grandma.😉

Mkrumen ,

Amazing podcast!

When I heard that you have a podcast, I assumed it would be some skits or some type of comedy podcast using your accent. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is an interview podcast. Not only are you very well researched on your guests but you have guests from all walks of life, which gives a very wide range of content for all types of listeners. I also love that you throw in your accent for your ads. This is quickly turning into one of my favorite podcasts!
