Such a great listen!
Tommy is such a joy to listen to. You can just hear the joy in his voice. It is so refreshing in today’s society of hate and everyone griping about how awful everything is to hear someone that is completely blind get so much joy out of life. We need to all learn a lesson from Tommy Edison. My only complaint is, THE WAIT! 🤪 Having to wait so long between episodes. Thanks Tommy and Ben for what you do!
Tommy and Ben are very entertaining and a great listen. Would recommend to anyone!
Love the Podcast!
Hopefully to see more in the future.
