These Guys Are Awesome
Listening to these guys is hilarious, They interview awesome speakers and their stories are fantastic. I love hearing about all their projects, travel experiences and thoughts on gear. I especially love just the travel tips.
It's like hanging out with old friends talking about gear, adventures, horror stories and life. Love it!

This is a great podcast for people who are in the industry and interested in cameras and etc, but it’s also a pretty hilarious listen even if you’re not. Funny, articulate, and well-informed. 👍
