Amazing podcast!!

When it drops on Tuesday, it’s the highlight of my week! I really love hearing their analysis of snowfall. It’s also really funny to hear their banter about the lack of snow in California. My friends have joked that I talk about this show too much.

I’ll miss this during the summer. I know that you guys said that it does not make economic sense for you two to make the show during the summer. If it was possible, I’d donate money for summer episodes on patreon or something. If not, an OpenSummit team would be great for an equivalent show.

Really really enjoyed

My first episode was the Atmospheric River episode & I really really enjoyed it. Just when I was worried you would not get technical into “the River,” you brought on homie that was from Hurricane Hunters or NOAA to discuss & the convo was awesome! I really hope that when we move into the summer months, you gentlemen who normally work for Open Snow find other weather events to discuss such as Hurricanes, derechos, monsoons, El Niño, or weather as it relates to fire season dangers, etc to keep the podcast going. Maybe historic winters such as the huge avalanche that destroyed the building at Alpine Meadows.

Passes the test

I debuted this podcast last night as I went to bed. It did the trick just right. Faithful follower of BA from twd and now to OS. Pray for snow.
Would love it if y’all got into climate change And your thinking on it.
