    I love your folks podcast. I really have enjoyed the videos that you have published. I know that video is a huge investment in time and manpower and so you need to ignore the negative complaints. There are a lot of haters out there that despise change or anything new. But if we listened to them we would never discover anything new and exciting.

    Thank you for your efforts.
