Mike Rowe does an incredible job of providing history, fun facts, as well as insight into interesting people and events in such a well thought out fashion. Love to listen to that voice as well as pick up on a few good vocabulary words every time.

From a retired cop

I absolutely Love Mike Rowe and his guests. Wow, I enjoy binge listening to the past episodes and look forward to each new one.

His wit, fantastic vocabulary and voice are amazing. I have always been a fan from the times he spent with Deadliest Catch and Dirty Jobs…but this is certainly the next level.

He should be very proud of himself. I know his parents are.

Good Job Mr Mike. I have purchased both Tim Cotton books and am now following your mom on FB.

Like I didn’t have anything else to do in my life. But this is worth it. And I am making the time.

God Bless You!
