    Mike if you are reading this... I miss you. I need you back in my life. It's funny that you are doing archery because I feel like Cupid has hit me with one of his arrows. Maybe we should do a joint costume for Halloween or like make homemade PSL's? I don't know... just call me okay. Bye



















    No seriously, please call. I love you

Best HG podcast that I've found!

Great conversations, really fantastic and engaging questions, a winning combination of practical information for newbies like me and lots of funny stories from from seasoned veterans of the sport. Really love hearing from the women athletes! My ONLY complaint is that there need to be MORE EPISODES!:)

New to sport

This podcast has helped me not only learn of the sport but feel “ok” to do my first event. My kilt arrived today and I have a little, not official, event next month. Suffering from a new Dx of what was once called Asperger’s, the podcast helped me in a lot of ways.
