Inspiring

As an old friend listening to stories and adventures from the past… it makes me emotional in a good way. Jasons natural ability to story tell and eloquent way of expressing them has always been his strong suit. Well done my friend.

Seasoned Podcaster with great guests

With all the guest hosting and producing Palmer has done in the past, it was no surprise that he came out firing with his first podcast of his own. He gets interesting guests and has real, honest conversations. Check it out!
