Bloodthirsty Vegetarians RULE!!

I just thought that I would chine in with my two cents on this awesome podcast. First the sound quality is spectacular. I don't know what they have done to get that kind of quality but it is so much better than the quality of a lot of the crap out there.

The topics that they speak about I may not always agree with but they always have good well thought out conversations. A great show and I am glad that they are back.

Hey, if presidents can vote for themselves...

Don't let the name fool you, it's not a cooking show. John and Rich are two vegetarians with some strong opinions that occasionally bleed into the conversation. That's just what the show is, a friendly conversation over a good bottle of wine. Topics range from politics to religion to food choices for veggies, but there's usually a movie review or two, punctuated by some independent music. Check them out if you're interested in community, rational thought, civil liberties, and discourse.

Don't let the stars fool you.

I didn't give it a bad rating for a few reasons:
1. It is well produced. The sound quality is good enough that I don't hear any of the tinniness that I often hear with podcasts on the cruddy iPod headphones.
2. When they do get started, they let the other person finish his thought without overmuch interruption. It's good to have a flow.

Other than that, I wasn't too pleased. I found it much like listening to the more gossipy of the frat boys back in college. They were fun to hang out with, and always amusing when a group of friends would get together, but not really something I would be interested in if I didn't listen for a long time.
