Down to earth and fun.
I listen to alot of podcasts and it's hard to find one that is like listening to your friends at the bar. The guys are funny and are comfortable around eachother. It's good to hear a show that doesn't take itself so seriously. The only thing they need is more time.
This is such a pleasant change of pace that it deserves everyone's attention. They are down to earth, witty and very likeable. A1 entertainment. Congratulations to CNet.
These guys are the best! I have listened to a lot of podcasts and tend to get bored with them over time, but these guys are just on. The wit, fun, lack of taking themselves too serious makes this podcast such a refreshing way of using 30 minutes of your day. Give it a chance, you will not be disappointed.
