Great, but with 1 exception.

I love this podcast! It has great information and is very entertaining. Although I think they should try to be less loud and try not to laugh so much? I just think lee laughs too much and too loud. Also i think the audio could be better. Lots of ambient noise. Other than that, great podcast guys! Keep doing it!

Why Podcasts Exits

This podcast is exhibit A as an example of the reason podcasts are valuable: knowledgable hosts with informed opinions, a subject outside the narrow confines of mainstream news/opinion topics, a healthy disregard for the ‘rules’ of time that compress content. The flow of conversation has enough structure to cue the listener to the subject’s different aspects, but doesn’t take the entire process so seriously. They say so right in the opening! Also important: The interplay between host keeps this entertaining!
