Simply the Greatest Show Concerning Military Aviation

I started listening in 2018 while working in my shop, very much riveted by the content. It’s informative without assuming certain knowledge, it’s kind, funny, and never political. Jell-o is doing his very best to re-invigorate the aviation enthusiast as well as ring a bell for the young person: The world still needs thoughtful, intellectual warriors.
