iTunes Ratings

Soulhydration – 3 stars: Good topics and getting started on the right foot.  This would have been a 5 star rating but it was a bit disappointing to see the explicit rating. Really, the foul language is distracting and makes hard to listen with the kids around or at work.  At the end of the day I think the explicit rating will turn many potential listeners away.

Rvicic – 5 Stars: I found you guys through Wood Talk, and so far I agree with Shannon, it’s pretty good.  In the second episode there is a 5 minute dead spot right at the end, and the  first two episodes had some bad sound quality.  BUT I like it.  Keep it up.

New shooter – 5 stars: Cool guys, keep it up.
