Doug - Mind Drippings Media ,

Finally Some Talent

Love this podcast. It's a relief that a podcast exists with some actual talent. This guy is funny, witty, and his sarcastic rhetoric is outstanding. The voices are great! The stories are hillarious and his ability to illustrate the realities of today's issues without glossing over the facts like NPR and all the NPR wanna be shows do is fricken classic!
