    I have listen to every pod cast that you have done, and today I realized what a great counterpoint you are for each other. While you both may have a similar thought on an issue neither seem to just have a clear run. You both seem to give slight checks to each other and it is greatly appreciated. It is nice to listen to conversation where it is not oh yes I agree, you are so right, all of the time. On the other hand it is not squabbling hens either. I have always enjoyed your mix of entertainment and news. I have always come away learning something new. Thank you for your continuing effort of the pod cast.

  • Josh, COOL. I am so glad Zack and I are not squabbling hens. Perhaps quibbling quails? Like you I appreciate that Zack and I can look at multiple sides of an issue, probe deeper at it for the other since we come from different backgrounds. I believe our mutual respect for each other helps and of course humor. I especially like the rapport we can share. It flows so naturally . NOTHING is scripted and we don’t edit.

    Thanks for the comment and for listening!

    OMG I love your vinegar advice! I hate stinky rags lol. Great start. Glad you had a good time in South Africa.

  • Jacob, I am loving the vinegar. Try it as fabric softener! Would love to chat South Africa with you at some point. Ah, All Gold tomato sauce and the Wild Coast!

  • Jacob Woods says:

    As someone who is out of the USA what draws you to work for equality and poverty elimination in South Africa? That is something I have wondered, not that it is a bad thing. I feel that we have entered the global economy and we are entering a world where global communication is necessary. Wishing I could make it to this years conference in Minneapolis!
