Kev Messick ,

Awesome podcast!

I’m the second guy who called in on episode 71” and I also had an email in the revisited Achy Breaky Song episode of The “Weird Al” Phabet which caused the hosts, particularly David, to hate me 😂
But thanks Dave and Ethan for making this podcast! Great content!

Aaron Roehm ,

Definitely listen if you are a Weird Al fan...and even if you aren’t (you should be though)

I look forward to listening to Dave and Ethan every week. They do an amazing job. Highly recommended!
