Smooth and professional

Jason has such a smooth, calming radio voice but I think he might have a face for Hollywood also! Love his podcast. Great guests and such a variety. Can’t wait to hear more from him!!

snowflake behavior

i enjoyed this podcast until i saw they were harassing another podcast with the word “protectors” in the title. no reason for that kind of sensitivity for someone who claims to be a “protector”!!!

Outstanding concept

Taking the time to showcase those who “run towards danger,” in all their endeavors, is not only brilliant but compelling. Great guests coupled with incredible insight and perspective make for an overall amazing show.
