I’m probably the #1 fan of this podcast!

If you want to give Mike and Chucks podcast a chance I’d begin with, “The King and Me”. It is a great trial run if it’s you are just starting to listen. I am a 25 year old student and employed worker, and I can’t thank you enough for doing what you are doing. The podcast is just jammed with penny for your thoughts moments and hilarious banter between both Mike and Chuck. I know that you aren’t necessarily “authorities” on any matter of “life lessons,” but that’s why you two are my favorite. Also, Mike and Chuck rarely get political but when they have it’s actually good moderate conversation. I’m a young Libertarian and I always feel my values resonate with what you both talk about.
