Hotshot BC ,

Love the show!

You guys have great content, great guests and are super easy to listen too. I have been listening for about a month. Mostly binge listening while driving and I’ll hooked.
We are in the nearly ready to haul our first load in our new hotshot venture. This show has given more clarity in many areas as well as sparked question to more issues I wasn’t addressing . I really enjoy your podcast and the way you present all of the detail. I will be sending a question or topic to the PDQ website and hopefully you will have input or perhaps shed light on the question(s) I have.

Thanks again and keep the shows coming!
