very very funny
whatever axe two of the reviewers may have against Reuters generally, nothing of such spleen venting is deserved in regards to this particularly cute Reuters podcast. extremely remarkable vids, whatever ths source, both cute and weird, as advertised.
We Want More Like This
I didn't know what to expect at first, but this was so funny and refreshing. Why aren't there more podcasts like this? Chad Rubel is hysterical, holds the whole thing together & should have a bigger show. Why isn't this on CNN or something? So much better than the cynical and nasty stuff out there.
Obviously not a substitute for hard news, but really entertaining. Some of the most bizarre news footage I've seen!
