Full of fun and wit
Nop-notch nerd-cast. Ilan and Justin cover a wide variety of subjects sure to interest the refined geek and do so with humour and class. Bonus points for the distinct Canadian-ness of the podcast. Good show, gentlemen.
Clever couple of guys..
..who you'd like to be in the room with while they are podcasting so you could kibitz along. Not the usual raggin on everything types you hear in other critique driven podcasts. If I was going to give one downside to this podcast, it is the volume. The guys tend to get a little excited and get loud quickly, if not outright shrill. Save your ears and make sure you have a volume limiter engaged. If they normalized their podcast, that may solve this problem.
I don't understand all our heroes have to say - I don't have that cred, I suppose. But this podcast is fast, sharp, and the guys know their dwarfs, lightsabers, and such. Even if you don't get it all - like me - you will be greatly entertained.
