Love it!

Paul, the podcast is great, has a nice variety of guests from all across the board. I’d give you five stars, but you’ve gotta nail down the audio quality. I’ve listened to every episode, some aren’t so bad, but others....eek! It sounds like you are washing the dishes or throwing coins into a huge metal vat or something while your guests are talking. Other than that, love it, enjoy your humor & perspective on things.

Dr drew show

Did anyone else listen to this and think that both Paul and dr drew lost all credibility? Paul was at least asking the right questions and drew dismissed everything as a media hoax. Seems like both should come back on and apologize to the disservice they did the audience with Drew’s advice.
