Great podcast!

This is a very entertaining and educational show. I don’t ride bicycles or live in VT but I really find this a great podcast, keep it up!

Great stuff

Great stuff! Love the podcast and hearing inside stories about Vermont outdoors. Keep them coming. My only knock is when they start getting preachy on pot. Save that for another podcast.
