I don't know if I'm just now noticing it, but i LOVE these little clips you leave sometimes at the end of your podcast. I've been a listener for a few months, but just recently discovered them! The Voices of Liberty at Christmas made me so happy! And its May! I've been getting caught up on podcasts i've missed and they add just a little bit more magic to the podcasts!
