Short attention span

I really like this podcast, but because I truly do have a short attention span, I skip past the introduction; listen to the story; then skip to the end of Mike’s rambling thoughts.
For this reason I only gave your show three stars. Go back to the 5-7 minute format, please.

Abduction

Hi Mike. I was thinking about the abduction of Elizabeth Smart as you told those two stories. Thanks! Very thoughtful.
