Love this podcast!

This podcast has been on my list for a while, but I just started listening to it today and I am already almost caught up! I love the content. I grew up taking trips to Duluth, MN in the summers to camp near Lake Superior and I lived there for 4 years while earning my degree, so Lake Superior is very dear to my heart. The Great Lakes truly are amazing and this podcast really shows how beloved they are by the people who enjoy them. Thank you for your great work!
