Love this podcast

Really enjoy Mark, Jimmy, and Ryan. Always have great guest too! Cartridge talks are my all time favorite but even when the holiday cartridge talks are over, great content just keeps on coming! I drive for almost 2 hours per day every day and this show runs non-stop!

Great show…

I like podcasts that make me feel as if I’m listening in on a cool conversation. It’s like visiting the relaxed atmosphere of an old gun shop.
