Smooth, casual interviewing style! Great stuff!
Get into Dodge City!
I love this show so much. It's funny, it's super-smart, and it just goes down real easy. It's one of those rare shows where I know I'll be listening to the next episode the second it comes out. Highest possible recommendation. I'd give it six stars, but The Man won't let me.
Awesome New Show!
Awesome show!! Engaging content, GREAT banter, and a unique point of view. I totally loved it. Don't miss it!
