Hits the spot!

This is just what I was searching for- since work consumes the majority of my time- and the people I work with aren't exactly-well rounded- this keeps me up to date and is the kind of dinner party I'd chose to go to! No long intros- and it moves within seconds to to the appetizer- a clean joke in this case, onto to drinks- five different perspectives on what was news this week and then into dinner -additonal topics of interest.


I like this podcast. It's light, fun, entertaining and informative. Please continue.

Short and entertaining
