Pure audio art.

When walking down a drab hallway, tune your ears to the left, auspiciously make a right into that blasphemous doorway of sight and sound and find yourself immersed in the audible fluctuations of waveform delectability. You have now entered the Entman zone. Do not be cordial, do not be morose. This is a chance for you to open your ears to something that you didn’t know you needed but knew you needed not. Heed that need and embrace these audio treats. For you are but a speck of dust hurdling through space and time. So why not explore this juncture of this tiny corner of this strange forbidden place.

On "banana softies"

Very eye opening. I heard before about animal testing but never in such a first-hand-experience point of view. Hearing Gene is sad but very upsetting at the same time. It is really horrific that those innocent animals are born and raised with the sole purpose of serving on radiation and cancer drugs testing. They come to this world to suffer. Everyone should listen to it!

Very good podcast!

A very touching story and can really sense the conflict inside of him. The podcast is so good and clear, honestly, it is very impactful and the sound effects add to the feelings brought up while listening. Very good at keeping information recent and fresh, and the personal story that is somehow relatable in a lot of ways. Very interesting and personal.
