Marasco Pico ,

AWESOME!

GREAT PODCAST!! So knowledgeable and in depth conversation with everything Ponds! Great Guest list too!! 🤙🏽🐠🤙🏽

BAMF6969696969 ,

Real life content

Just like the title says Eric drops real life content that is pond and non pond related and does so in a way that is entertaining and fresh. If you’re into ponds and fish tune in he change the way you look at ponds forever!

Update episode 69 great listen and definitely helps bring some reality to what is actually happening right now and hopefully allows for more open and honest conversations with your contractors

FF 142 ,

Enjoying

Thank you for your attention to detail!!
