Ep.150 The 150th Episode – So Far, So Good!

Episode Notes

Way back in Feb 2018 He Shoots, He Draws was born. It started as a weekly podcast and in those 159 weeks, it’s published 150 episodes so the plan is kind of working. The show has been graced with some amazing guests, over 100 5 star reviews left on iTunes and a very loyal following listener base, a couple of thousand downloads away from 250,000 downloads from over 100 countries. To say they are both chuffed to bits is an understatement. So thank you to everyone who has listened and shared, it’s very much appreciated in a very saturated podcast market. Dave and Alan have a quick catch up before going back into some great upcoming guest interviews over the next few weeks.
