Atlantans doing great work!

Having just finished the Intro, I look forward to listening to the entire forthcoming two years of work. Thank you for this and I hope that we can meet in ATL sometime.

Infernally Delightful

This podcast is top-shelf, first-rate, state of the art. These guys are on a mission to find the comedy of The Comedy, and they do it as only two old friends can. Come for the semi-obscure 14th-century Italian poem, stay for the Van Halen & Back to the Future tangents. Or, you know, vice versa. Oh, and more Armageddon references please.
