Hey guys! I really enjoyed your podcast today - my husband and I listened to it together. Loved the interview at the beginning and loved that Mike was so open about his feelings about the Bachelor. I agree with you, Bryan, Mike is a wonderful human being and I personally think he should have been the Bachelor. Would have loved to hear more about his story and see his journey. Anyways, keep up the good work and looking forward to the next episode! (I just had eye surgery and it is a long recovery - podcasts are my sanctuary!)
