The only one I know!
I learned about James from a friend. I randomly looked up to see if he has a YT channel then what do ya know!! Love you guys! (P.S. James, I live in Nashville (OHX).
Perfect for the weather nerd
There is much more to the weather than an evening 5 minute report on TV. This is an outstanding look at the profession and the passion behind these public service professionals.
Fix the audio
The audio in this podcast keeps me from coming back from more. Sound effects are hugely unnecessary but if you insist on using them, turn the friggin volume down! Half of the people talking are garbled and too quiet because the audio in video chat is terrible so I have the volume cranked way up, and then all of a sudden a super loud pointless sound effect comes on. Stop! The information is good, I guess, but it's very complainy and rambly and not very structured. I find myself prefering to pick and choose episodes based on content rather than tuning in weekly, but it's hard to even do that with the irrelevant, inside-joke titles.
