As Hilarious as ASMR

I’m listening to the ASMR episode and I felt the need to admit publicly that I’m having a great laugh listening to you fellas. I totally get what you’re saying cos like you I cannot not yank my earphones out of my ears within the first minute of listening to (& watching, of course) an ASMR session on YouTube and I browsed through a few. Though not by Lenny Kravitz I was introduced to ASMR by a friend of my sister‘s. She talked about it like it was her thing (like how PUBG is to some people). I checked it out, couldn’t resonate to it. Cheers guys! I thought I was the only one.

Been listening since 2008. BUT too many ads now. EDIT: Political

I love the podcast. In fact, this is the first podcast I ever heard and subscribed to back in 2008. But recently there have been WAY too many iHeartRadio self promotion ads. It’s a giant turn off. Especially some “in your face” type of ads. I understand promotion is important, but I miss the good old days of just HowStuffWorks content. Promoting other podcasts made sense as the listeners were open to similar content. But now it’s all crap.

Edit: These guys used to be quite independent, but over the last few years, I guess since the iHeartRadio take over, they have started to express some thoughts on politics. I prefer it to being just a fantastic show about Stuff I Should Know!
