This has become my favorite podcast to listen to while running my weekly gassers. It is always a #RRGT . Even before licensed professionals Roaring Shovel ( #burningmanname ) and Daniel Vaniel Kaniel share their unique insights into the lives of their fans, Patrick Keenan of The Winter Sounds welcomes me home with the greatest theme song in all of podcast history. It is my great honor and pleasure to help these fine gentlemen #growtheshow on my way to going #F2F.
