Pod for the soul!

This podcast is pod for the soul! I love MASH and only show that is neck and neck is Star Trek DS9.
I learn so much and I love the banter between the hosts! Since finding this podcast I listen to at least two shows per day! I also had no idea about the cookbook by Egor or Klingers books.
I act am going tomorrow to pick up the cookbook my local bookstore ordered for me and they found an original publishing version!!! Eek!

Just what the Dr. Ordered

I just discovered this podcast and can not say enough good things about it. I love the banter and jokes between Jeff and Ryan. The interviews are amazing and I love the behind the scenes look. I have been waiting to leave a voicemail until I’m current. I’m almost there so be on the look out for it. Also when are you going to interview Gilles Gentley.

Best Mash podcast!

Thank you for creating this podcast! Mash has been a part of most of my life. When I was about 7 years old I had a swap sign on my bedroom door and had a “still” I made in my bedroom . It only dispensed water so no worries. My favorite character is Hawkeye but I always like to watch scenes with the supporting characters as it gives the the show depth. I always enjoy when Igor makes an appearance in a scene! My wife and I will be going to the mash site on September 17th to celebrate the airing of the pilot 50 years ago.
We will be tipping back some grape nehi in honor of my favorite tv show!
