What an entertaining podcast. Can't wait for the next episode.
LOVED "Wouldn't it be lice?" It gave me the creepy-crawlies! I just ordered a case of RidX and ten gallons of Lysol. You guys are great---funny and smart. Keep those podcasts coming!
A wonderful listen and I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for something historical with a twist of the hysterical (the good type). Additionally, though I don't know our three intrepid podcasters personally, I could think of no one I'd rather have my back if I were to ever charge up a hill in San Juan. Bully, Gentlemen!
