Like a Phoenix...
Imagine the aftermath of a giant epic fantasy battle. Bodies lying in the red-stained dirt, buzzards flying overhead, the air heavy with the smell of sweat and death.
That battle was Podtoid.
Now imagine one man making his way back to his feet. He begrudgingly uses his sword for leverage and stands up, looking around for anyone else that may yet live. He finds them, and helps them stand up.
That man is Brad Nicholson.
Together, they walk through the carnage. Stepping over the bodies of their fallen brothers, they muster their will to carry on to the next battle.
That next battle is The Electric Hydra.
With Podtoid dead and gone, Brad takes the reins this round and brings his buddies Topher Cantler, Jim Sterling, Joseph LeRay, and the lovely Adam Dork along for the ride as they discuss topics such as journalism, literature, music, movies, video games, food and anything else that they feel compelled to talk about.
If you enjoyed Podtoid, you will find this to be even better. Even if you've never heard an episode of Podtoid in your life, I encourage you to give this one a listen. You'll enjoy it.
Brad as host is everything I hoped it would be and more. I love you all.
Wow, just wow...and I mean it!

Hilarity will ensue as soon as you subscribe. You will even be laughing as it's downloading. That's how fantastic it is! What more must I say!? Electric Hydra for Life!
