South Jersey Fan

Been listening to on radio for years, so happy Mike has podcast.
Like that he isn’t condescending, gives good advice for all levels and that he promotes organic gardening. I’m trying to keep my garden a safe happy place for pollinators & wildlife...

Poorly organized

Wish this show was a better organized. He answers random questions most of show then at very end quickly reads off some prepared remarks about the “tease” subject in 5 minutes without any real discussion. Imagine a class organized this way. Prefer to have him pick a topic and spend a fair amount of time discussing it with a related question or two at end.
We like Mike but you can do better, cat.
