Great

Love the energy Tommy and Keith bring to this podcast. These two gentlemen are clearly professionals in the topic of aviation so it’s great to listen to their banter once a week. Keep up the great work gents, BS&TW

Very entertaining & lighthearted!

I love this podcast. Tommy & Keith’s banter brings a good energy to the podcast. It is filled with both interesting facts and comical stories that will make you laugh out loud in public places making you look like a fool (in particular Keith’s story in Bottomless Drinks and Somali Warlords) Not just for aviation geeks, but for anyone who wants to learn more & have a good laugh!

Amazing Podcast!!

This podcast is phenomenal! I really enjoy listening to the hosts’ stories and experiences about their traveling adventures. The first episode’s story about the water bottle had me belly laughing so hard I started crying. A great listen for anyone that wants a laugh or to hear about some of the ins and outs of airline traveling!
