I Never Miss It
This terrific podcast is my Thursday commute-from-work companion. I look forward to it and never miss it. Sam Leonard gets better each week. I always learn something, either a different take on a story I heard elsewhere or an interesting story picked up by Sam that I'd otherwise miss. Plus, Sam is funny. This isn't a comedic take on the news, or a news parody, by any means, but Sam definitely adds a few laughs, sometimes where they're least expected.
Sam's interview with Shannon Edwards was solid and captivating. He's strong in that format, and I hope he'll do more of that, in addition to keeping the weekly format going.
Solid podcast, from opening to the bonus music track, different each week, that closes each show. Listen, y'all.
Great podcast. Well produced. Sam really has his finger on the pulse of Pittsburgh. If you like comedy and news that can you effect then this is for you.
Great Look At PGH
Now a few months in, Sam's really found a unique voice and look at the happenings of the Steel City. Great weekly listen
