Good

Good information

“We’re not going to get into politics, but...”

“we’re gonna pimp Joe Biden because he wants to spend kadoodle-zillions of borrowed Chinese yuan on Amtrak.”

Never mind that he will return us to the failed economic policies of Barack Obama that will give us a weak, stagnant economy.

See, I can be non-political too.

Great idea, production needs improvement

I've been a subscriber to the Trains print magazine, so was happy to see this podcast launched. Unfortunately, even after quite a few episodes, the production value still remains pretty low. Improved sound mixing could eliminate the need to adjust my volume up or down every few minutes. Also, it doesn't seem like the shows are very well planned. Conversational podcasts can be entertaining and informative, but I encourage the Brians to have the shows better timed and scripted.
