Have been listening to J.Brown Podcasts for a while. Initially liked them but thought the intro and end lacked value. After my second or third podcast that really changed. The intro and end where J.Brown puts in his perspective is actually incredibly valuable and it is kind of like after hearing a discussion getting another persons perspective and I am seriously coming to respect and value this perspective. So thanks J.Brown kudos to you for a totally brilliant podcast.
