Tightly editied and densely packed fun

A refreshing antidote to the men sitting in a room chatting unedited for over an hour genre of podcasts, this smart, structured and entertaining podcast delivers what I've wanted in a podcast for ages, tightly edited humorous look at topical news, but with music! Pretty much the only podcast I don't play at 1.5x speed.
