Velosarahptor ,

Great! Please make older shows available!

I'd like to download older shows, especially the drinking and bawdy shows, but there is something wrong with the server. I can't get any old ones!
Please fix this!

It's such a great podcast and collection of songs that I want more!

Bob6.022E23 ,

Semi-recommended

I skip through the useless chatter to get to the useless music.
Songs praising alcoholism or modeling mysogyny not recommended for those whose brains have not fully matured (circa age 27).

claxxon ,

this podcast is awful!

I have listened to this podcasts for a long time, and it just keeps getting worse. the only good thing about this podcast is the music. The hosts have always sounded like they wish they were someplace else. I wish they would try to make more of a show of it. Hearing thick southern accents lacadasically tell me about the next ren thing kills it for me. Or the past hosts badly trying on renniassance accents while speaking in what can only be described as a drug induced cadence was, and still is AWFUL!
