Hilarious and absurd. There should be more 5-minute podcasts.
5 minutes of pffff hahahhahaha!
I think it's genius that these podcasts are only 5 minutes long because it's the perfect shot of humor for your day. That said, I find myself bummed when they are over!
Also dig the second person approach. No one else is doing that! Steve is a fantastic storyteller with a flair for the ridiculous, and the concept can go as far as Steve is willing to let it. That's a long way, so buckle up, people!
I had to pull over this morning because I was laughing so hard. This podcast is the best way to start your day. Can't recommend it enough.
