Gargamello ,

Clever, well produced

Charming British accent. The Fuji Rock Festival report was especially good, right length too. The news media event went on a bit long as editors explained at length how "the internets" were not going to steal their jobs, didn't like that one so much. But overall, a quality production with a careful touch.

Poe Dameron. ,

Monacle is dope!

I am totally impressed by the content of this podcast, truly surprised most people haven't checked it out yet
