Best. Show. Ever... finally a podcast
Maybe it's just me, but I've never heard a TAL episode I didn't enjoy. Now I can enjoy it on the go, rather than being teathered to my PC by a streaming feed. If you like John Hodgman, Sarah Vowell, David Sedaris and the like you can't go wrong with TAL.
Thank you Ira, yes indeed, this really is the moment I have been waiting for. The greatest thing on radio now on my iPod. Signed, One postively giddy listener in Canada
