Listener Feedback from Episode #85:

I agree with Exum, customer service is AWESOME. Honestly, the best of the companies that I work with. Love the new webplayer. I have switched to it completely. A suggestion would be to have a link to the show note. Not sure how that would work but creating a "pop up" of show notes or something makes the listening experience even better.

Question: I am a small business owner looking for podcast advertising opportunities, so if you could give me more information, I would appreciate it. I am interested in advertising on independent political podcasts and have an advertising budget of around $100-$200 a month. Thank you for your time.”
