Best gun/hunting/cooking podcast

From the genuine rapport the hosts share with one another and their guests, to the casual-yet-educational discourse, to the varied and interesting subject matter, one can rest assured of a good show no matter what. I have listened to so many drunk redneck gun podcasts - and I say this as a drunk redneck shooter - that this was a refreshingly sober and humorous take on the genre; there is no episode that fails to either educate or entertain or both with superb production value tacked on as a bonus.

Great podcast!

This is literally my most listened to podcast show. Whether I am trying to learn about a particular topic being discussed or simply following for entertainment. Mark, Jim, and Muckipedia do a fantastic job with this podcast.
