Disappointed

Unfortunately, I’m new to podcasts and just saw yours yesterday (March 2022). What a great one it was!!! Wish it was still running new episodes but THANKS for the ones available!

Excellent TV podcast

Excellent interviewer and great guests! I’m only sorry I am finding this so long after the shows were made. I’m happy these podcasts are still available, I’ve almost heard most of them in the last few days. I’d enjoy listening if more are ever produced. After listening to these, I’ll look into the host’s other current podcasts! Great work!!! Very enjoyable.
