Love the broadcast……but…

Absolutely love the information that comes from these experts. Look forward to every broadcast.

But…..could do without the tension that clearly exists between Jim and Mark. When you two work together without the zingers the information is so much more authoritative and reliable.

Thanks again for what you all bring to the table.
