Lost but can be found

Most of the time I can't figure out what ideas they are trying to achieve. Maybe it's just suppose to be ironic, maybe I'm not cool enough to get it. The podcast is a mess but has potential to be something really special.

Exactly what I needed to find.

LDM makes my day, everyday.
