Cavers; This is it! Finally a caving podcast!
You have to dig deep and explore to find much on the internet dealing with caving. This podcast definitely fills a void for those who enjoy caves and caving. Then to find something with such quality in both production and content is unbelievable. Matt is a great host and I find myself looking forward to what the next episode will hold? Keep 'em coming Matt!
This is great!
Great storytelling and a great personality. I've looked for caving podcasts in the past but found nothing. Finally, there is a podcast that hits closest to home. Thank you!
I look forward to more guests from states outside of Indiana and around the world.
