Intended to listen to just one and then before I knew I'd finished them all. Great for the improv newbie and nerd alike. Looking forward to future episodes.
Amazing, amazing, AMAZING
As a beginner who wants to learn as much as I can, this is totally the right level of nerd and doesn't make me feel like a total noob in the slightest. Beginner concepts with just enough meat to challenge my current thinking but also not overwhelm me completely.
I also like how certain terminology is used in a way that doesn't exclude anyone (who decided you're either straight or absurd anyway, I mean... Some of us are both!) Keep them coming!
