Awesome Info!

Love this podcast! The episodes are short so it’s super easy to devour tons of them. The information is great; it tends to be things I haven’t heard before, which is awesome. The majority of the episodes I’ve listened to have really useful information, which is great because I feel like a lot of other podcasts are hit-or-miss when it comes to their content. Love this podcast!

Great podcast.
