This new podcast is already bringing the heat.
I managed to find this podcast early, which is usually a detriment, because early podcasts have pacing issues; co-host haven't gelled yet; and grooves have yet to be filled. However this cast feels more like a second year run, full of excitement and fully realized. I am excited to follow this cast's journey to see what they will do to trump their current cohesion, and also more Ashley Songs!
Pretty good show!
