“My partner in pod Ronny Leblanc and I are so glad we went with Pod617. Beyond the great production he pumps out each week for us, David Yas has become an integral character on the show. He and 'Producer Kerri’ provide valuable content & personality that goes beyond their already valuable technical know-how. Monsterland is a spooky place, but we always feel safe with POD617!"
