Intriguing Concept & Off to a Good Start
As a transplant to Texas who’s lived here for many years now, I find Matthew’s concept for this podcast intriguing. I enjoyed hearing about his first guest’s experiences in Joplin and in Texas, and look forward to hearing future episodes with more of “the most interesting Texans you’ve never heard of.” Great job, Matthew!
I am a midwestern guy and this show makes me proud of texas!
