    Jonah, I love your podcast. Breaking down the topics by time is very helpful – you’ve actually supplanted the Fantasy Focus as my daily baseball fix.

    Also, I wanted to let you know that after months of trying to find a pirated version online, I’m finally going to break down and purchase The Extra 2% audiobook.

      Thanks! Wife’s idea to do the time breakdowns…she’s the brains behind the podcast in many ways.
