Was just listening to the podcast and wanted to offer lessons learned as a lefty that grew up shooting left handed with right handed rifles. It wasn't until I was about 23 years old that I got my hands on a legit left-hand bolt action rifle. I was so excited when that brand new special ordered Ruger M77 showed up at the gun shop. A beautiful piece. I put some rounds down range and it just felt weird. Turns out I actually like right hand bolts better. Most of my shooting is done from a prone or otherwise bipod supported position. In this position my right hand ran the bolt. It is comfortable and seems faster when engaging multiple targets. Sold the only lefty rifle I ever had to finance my long range build... a RIGHT handed Remington 700.
