A++++ for coverage of the Bundy standoff. This looks like it's going to be a great podcast!
Great to have a podcast on these public lands issues
Really enjoyed the first podcast and looking forward to hearing more. Seems like there could be lots of good people to interview on Western issues. Have you thought about having some outdoor recreation folks on the podcast?
Top-notch first episode!
Topical and fresh. It's great to see Western issues get the airtime they deserve.
