We love listener feedback. Thank you to Kurt for his kind words in the Apple iTunes Podcast store:

I’ve only just discovered Gordon [Firemark] and Tamera’s [Bennett] podcast (and their great blogs). They convey a lot of information in an accessible and engaging way. As a young lawyer realizing there’s so much more to learn in the great post-law-school beyond, it’s nice not only to get introduced to new concepts, but also to stay up to date on those already familiar to me. Hit the subscribe button already; it’s worth your time.
