Joehungo ,

Super informative and entertaining podcast

I would never have thought when I started listening to the this podcast about 6 months ago that I would “binge” listen to as many episodes as I have. It is fun, interesting, and really well put-together for what it is. Would be entertaining and informative for many even outside of the industry. Thank you Travis and the other for making this podcast!

Eat meat! It’s our job security!

Hey guys just binged the whole series on a family road trip to the coast. I really appreciate all the time and effort that’s going into the series so far, and I can’t wait to hear more. I’m sitting in Moses Lake Washington maybe someday I’ll meet you both! Thanks again and keep it up!
