Incredible RVA Podcast

This podcast is the bee's knees. Great hosts and very interesting guests. I think everyone who steps outside in Richmond needs to listen to this because the podcast paints a beautiful picture of the city's natural wonder and shines light on those behind the scenes who advocate for and promote the natural splendor. Keep up the excellent work.

I want to put 5 Stars, but

I think there is a decent amount of growth to do from the hosts.

You bring these awesome guests on to discuss topic’s they are expert’s in, and because of all the research that went into the podcast, you end up talking over the Guests to show your excitement about the topics you researched that they are experts in. I wish you guys would ask the questions and then sit back a lot and let the Guest expand in his knowledge about the topic. As host’s your job is to guide the conversation, not be the conversation.

I’ve listened to a bunch of them and noticed this building in multiple podcasts with the latest about the River Keeper being frustratingly noticeable.

I will keep listening, and it has great potential so I hope you guys and work on it!

PS. Because I don’t want to hurt your ratings(as a lover of all RVA things), put a contact link on your website. I would have gone that method first.
