Thanks for the reruns

I burned through the episodes when I first discovered this podcast. It’s so nice to have them drop weekly now and savour them. I really need an escape to happy childhood memories!

thanks Tod Maffin!

My friend suggested I listen to this podcast after I posted a famous Les Nesman quote on Facebook for US Thanksgiving (I'm Canadian). I downloaded HMOTD almost immediately and, in just over 2 weeks, have already finished the first 2 seasons (and heard Tod's name on the second season wrap-up episode). I love this podcast; listening to Mike and Rob discuss each episode reminds me of being a kid and howling with laughter watching WKRP with my twin sister and older brother. Although I love hearing about the show itself, the tangents the hosts go off on are probably my favourite part. Who knew WKRP could inspire conversations about so many other topics?
