Perfect Union!

This a fantastic podcast with great hosts, I really love it and I learn something every episode. Forgive me, I’m not a spring chicken so maybe it’s just me, sometimes the talking is so fast I have to check to see if I accidentally hit the speed key! Lol! I usually rewind a couple of times so I don’t miss anything. This is not a complaint, just a suggestion if possible to slow down. Your podcast is very valuable to me. Thank you!!!
