Love the show

Hey AL long time listener love the show but in recent podcast you have posted, it seems to skipping like you say a sentence and then on occasions it skips forward. I’ve notice this like in the pass 4/5 podcast you posted, but besides that love the show. If the Redskins go 0-4...Please bring back the resurrection/ the Holy Spirit like you did in your show like what 2/3 years ago
