Do not miss it!

I discovered WWDTM only a few months ago and I am completely fond of it. I really wonder how I could feel alive it before without this podcast. It is so entertaining and funny that I often find myself laughing all alone while stuck in traffic jams. So if you need a boost for your Monday mornings rides to the office, download WWDTM and be ready to smile! Amazing job, thank you guys. :)
