A Tour of Force!
As someone totally not connected with this audio programme in any way, I think it's the most important human achievement since Hormel's groundbreaking miniaturization of pizzas into tiny bageled bites.
The best thing in the world
I feel like I can face every day head on after listening to the angelic vocals of Chad and Hyle. Their profound discussions are full of such insight and wit that you'll never have to listen to anything else, ever. And I'm NOT just saying that.
It makes up for the lack of love in my life.
The only thing that keeps me from killing myself is the fear that they won't have this show in the great beyond.
