I've enjoyed the first three episodes so far. It's nice to hear such a polished, well produced, Denver based podcast. Looking forward to future episodes!
A reason to look forward to Wednesdays
These guys curate an eclectic and engaging assortment of content, spotlighting the stories, sounds, and voices of Denver and beyond. With impressive production values and thoughtful arrangement, Denver Orbit gives voice to the Colorado creative community. I only wish there were more episodes, but I'm glad they don't sacrifice quality for the sake of quantity.
