Really funny and interesting
Man - Tim Chang has a lot to learn about this big world. I'm looking forward to other topics. It's also really interesting to hear some of the fun back story. I learned a lot about the Beatles in this one too. This is one funny podcast.
Very funny stuff.
It's a pretty cool thing to witness someone hearing the Beatles for the first time, as usually this happens well before they are able to form complete sentences. This podcast is really funny, smart, and also pretty informative. Well done, Josh-- this endeavor was long, long overdue. I can't wait for the next installment!
Tim Chang is a weird bird.
