Great Podcast

The Owl Tales Podcast is the greatest podcast ever produced. The fact that three men from Rockcastle County created this podcast is amazing. I love the information they give about Ag education and the FFA. These guys are great and I laugh at them every time.

Very Entertaining

Lewis steals the show, mainly cause he doesn’t even know it... word on the street is that that’s just Lewis being Lewis!!!

SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT!!

Until y’all read it over the air, I had no idea how my review could have easily been taken as being backhanded. Oops, my bad!! I just meant that it’s evident Lewis is very genuine, as well as being SUPER FUNNY!! Not knowing Lewis personally, just knowing people who do(word on the street) They all say he’s like that on & off the air( Lewis being Lewis). Also was never trying to leave you other two boys out, it definitely takes the chemistry of all 3 of ya’ll to make it a great podcast!!
Next thing to clear up is I Am Not this Sam Evans character ya’ll keep mentioning!! First of all, I am not male, second I gave y’all 5 stars not 2, & last but not least I’m not a Coward!! LOL!!

I like it when Lewis says something borderline inappropriate and Matt’s heart valve goes off like a laser gun on 007 on N64.
