More of these please

I wish there were more Portland-based podcast like this one. It's quite well-done for something that has such a indie vibe.

Best Portland Podcast Going.

An excellent podcast that gives you the feel and flavor of Portland while connecting you with its culture. The host knows his stuff, comes across as authentic, and seems genuinely interested in his various subjects and the people he speaks with. May also be the best 'local culture' podcast for any major city I have yet heard. Good work. Keep 'em coming.
