    These two go way back. But that's for you, Glenn and Dave to find out.
    Hippo fact. They're an introduced species in Colombia and the USA.
    Pablo Escobar is responsible for introducing them to Colombia. The Wikipedia article about that is a pretty interesting read.

Love it

Have just discovered this great podcast. Thoroughly enjoying it with one concern. Glen can you speak up a bit.... Dave is very loud and you can be very soft and I miss your great punchlines.

Funny as.

Brilliant, two comedians shooting the breeze and being so funny as they do. Listen in you won’t regret it.
