This is not a review
I am not reading the text of the review right now. It is me, one of the hosts of Magnified Pod, talkjng to you, the listeners, on one of the episodes of our podcast.
I would like to apologize for all of the bad things I said about Five Iron Frenzy's album "All the Hype". I do, in fact, love this album dearly, as does my esteemed co-host.
I am sorry for besmirching the unimpeachable name of Five Iron Frenzy, and I will endeavor to do better next time.
Toodle-oo, Mag Pod for Life, Our Newest Podcast FOREVER!
This show rules.
This show takes me back 20+ years to an awesome time in my late teens/early twenties. These boys good!

Have you ever been to a show and your in line for the show, or standing waiting for the next band to play and you hear those two dudes talking who know more about the band, then the band probably knows about themselves, well this podcast are those two guys. All kidding John and Andrew do an outstanding job braking down albums of your favorite bands and talk about other things as well. What things you ask? Well listen to find out.
