  1. Absolutely love the podcast! Binged it all. I’ll follow where you two lead, but I’ll admit if you ever do a Charles Bronson episode I’ll be beholdin’ to you both.

    • Mark, thank you so much for this message! I’m absolutely thrilled that you’re listening and enjoying the podcast as much as we enjoy bringing it to you. It really means a lot to us, as this is basically a labor of love for me and Andrew. As for your suggestion, I guarantee that you’ll be seeing a Bronson episode in the future. In fact, he made so many great Westerns, it might have to be our first two-parter! Out of curiosity, if you had to pick three Bronson titles to choose from, which would you personally select? In the meantime, I’m going to pass your kind words on to Andrew. He’ll be as delighted as I am to receive your gracious support. Thanks again, Mark. You made my day.
