Boom

Boom 5 Stars. Oh!
You want more, baby? Boom, there you go..5 more stars. Oh.
If you love the feel of, and let’s not mince our words here, old Jews talking. Hmmm?
Then this is the podcast you’re looking for.
Josh is a wunderkind, hanging out with older dudes his entire life. His maturity is rubbing off on Andy, who has clearly made major steps himself in the last few years.(I don’t claim to know anything about these guys on a personal level btw, I just surmise what we can all hear from this weekly delight)
His need for Josh’s approval is so utterly adorable, and I’m sure it’s more complex than this little two hour window a week is making it seem, but, to put it simply; it’s a beautiful friendship.
This podcast shouldn’t work. People who don’t get it, really look down on us TSpirallers - they think we’re off our ‘eads.
I’m sure Andy and Josh are pretty perplexed, themselves. I just know (woah, is Blowhardy about to exert himself? I think his presence had already been felt. Gulp),
that Monday wouldn’t be the same without that feeling when I remember new Thought Spiral is there. Yes! I used to listen on the bus, but now I go in for a little deferred gratification; waiting till lunchtime when I nip out for coffee and a sandwich, it’s perfection, Thought Spiral is magic.
Yes, I take a two-hour lunch on a Monday. I could never listen on another day of the week, that would be crazy.
We forget about the magic of (blowharrrdy) the podcast. I can just listen in on these gentlemen over 5000 miles away, talking (in what is a deceptively well edited show) to each other roughy 7 days ago. ....eh! Way to explain a podcast, Shakespeare...
Alright, that’ll do. Ta ra.
Purush?? You never call anymore, baby.
