Funny & informative !
Favorite Pod! 🏈
I moved to Arizona from Plymouth Massachusetts. I live listening while running in the Arizona heat!
5 stars when Tom lets Phil talk
Love the pod, but sometimes Tom’s blood sugar is low and he gets cranky and doesn’t let Phil talk. Phil is always prepared with outstanding information and takes, Tom provides the color - it’s a good combo, until Phil brings information and takes and Tom just talks over him then says he’s hungry. Get Tom a snickers!
