The podcasts are chock-full of information. I never feel like I'm listening to pointlessness, unlike some other podcasts that are all over the place. The hosts also have likable personalities and are intelligent. I like that they describe things clearly; rarely will I not understand what they are saying/what they mean. Keep up the good work! Be sure to give them a listen if you haven't already.
