Awesomesauce

Great podcast with lots of great speakers. Informative in a relaxed way. I started at the beginning and have been listening too while working and driving. I’m currently on episode 26 and have enjoyed every one, especially 25. I’ll be doing the paid subscription once I get caught up on the episodes. Thanks Joe!
