Good honest fun

Ken has brought me so many laughters, insights and food for pondering. Sensible, humorous and honest. This is entertainment and education perfectly rolled in one. When I’m really stressed and tired and feel like I can’t concentrate on anything, Brattlecast is the only exception. The dialogues revive me.
