Sometimes a great harmony

I can't always agree with Pesca but the language he uses to make a point is already worth my attention. When I whole-heartedly agree, as with the online ticket sales rant, my humanity is refreshed.
+ Points for the music interludes.

One of my must-listen-to podcasts-6 Stars

This podcast almost always hits on all cylinders, which I find pretty amazing since it is a 5 day a week podcast. I love the regular guests for features like 'Is That Bulls--t' (I really miss the 'Post Prudy Impact Statement’) and the Spiel makes my day 95% of the time. Mike Pesca’s lyrical, intelligent word play is my favorite part of the show, and gets me laughing out loud, something I don’t do all that often. His March 6, 2015 word play about snow still makes me laugh, in the middle of the summer. My weekends are not as much fun without a new episode of The Gist.
Added Bonus-when a podcast host responds to an email I sent in 17 minutes, with a great pun, it deserves six stars.
