Great show, not enough of it

College Years is my favorite Jordan/Jesse podcast on max fun. I actually prefer it to the currently produced podcast, which is hard to listen to because of how the hosts' voices have changed. The only thing that takes away from this podcast is that it was apparently made monthly instead of weekly. Give us one a week again!

So Great

The hosts are such greenhorns at this point in their careers, but there's an unmistakeable charm in their amateur stylings that belies a potential not often found in college radio hosts. Wow, that was ended up sounding pretty pretentious. Oh well. It's not my favorite Maximum Fun podcast, but it is the one I've re-listened to must often. So there!

Very fun and enjoyable!

It's the same Sweetheart, Boy Detective, and Big Time we know today, just a little more raw and not quite as edgy. "Extreme Weatherman", "All-Time" lists, and "Evil Robot" are hilarious.
