sweet mercy your irish descriptions\pronounciationfrom the bodhran on is horrific
can they not just go into the wild and plant a BUNCH of berry bushes? seems there trying everything other then saving the bears or doing anything them selves seems like they don't even want to get good garbage cans LOL
If anyone that is enjoying this podcast about Grizzlies , I highly suggest that you watch the Leonardo DiCaprio movie The Revenant. I imagine that anyone that's in the movies more than likely has already seen it but then you want is reading this and by chance hasn't seen it I highly recommend it it is an amazing movie and best of all is a true story. there's a big difference between based on a true story and a true story and the revenant is a true story I actually read the book and the movie is very factual with regard to the story unlike some movies that are based on the true story that used a massive amount of creative liberties this story is so unbelievable there's no need to use any creative liberties the truth is good enough so I think Jesse give it a watch It's a true classic and Leonardo at his absolute best.
if it wasn't for a commercial every 10 minutes
scratch that.. now 5 commercial breaks. smh
if you like a crap ton of commercials this is the podcast for you
if you like commercials then this is the podcast for you. it's a great podcast but Holy crap, 30 minutes in and already hit with 4 commercial breaks. come on, you really gotta make it just as bad or worse than tv? sad really
every one of those rich pricks need to be executed so pathetic only the rich can give two shits my God they need hanged
we need more !
I listened to this podcast a while back and wondered why I stopped. then after the 3rd row of advertisements and commercials I realized. hard to listen to podcasts when you are interrupted with ad after ad. takes away for the feeling you get when listening to a podcast. You can be completely into a show and feel what's happening then get hit with a ad and it completely ruins it. I think you lose at lot more listeners than you think due to ads.
Natural consequences = the purest form of justice
Why is the voice of Teddy Roosevelt a female voice in this podcast?!? Very distracting.
got to say I love how the captures pray to Allah and think its a gift from God from getting PRISONERS AHAHAH religion is screwed up
I like how you always add an account of a parent or loved one and the urgency to find there loved ones if they find them or not I do like the story and how u always tell the story from more then one perspective
by far the best podcast I've listened too absolutely love these storys of survival wow great job
