Good content, but far too long

Always good information, but the episodes are way too long.

qwqwwqww ,

Excellent podcast

Great information, complex issues explained in a simple manner

Livingco ,

Short pithy information

This is an important source of education for sharing. My support group can listen for 10-15 minutes and learn a lot with this easy to listen to format. Please keep it up in the digest form. There are fewer this year and that worries me that you are quitting. I send links to family as well. They don’t have an hour to listen.
