Anime/Music Selection Van

Whomever reads these (Steven?)

Sturgill Simpson - Sound and Fury (Music)
Netflix - Sturgill Simpson presents sound and fury.

The Netflix feature is an animated album long anime. (Big Mushroom watch/listen for me)

Titan AE was a strong recommendation. This is under an hour and does it right. Feedback is welcomed!

Loved the Award show (*omissible* and our jedi maester J, gone but not forgotten)

PEW PEW,

Kyle

Good podcast, but...

A great podcast with great shows and topics, although the “midnight boys” might be the two most annoying podcasters I’ve ever heard, and I’ve listened to My Favorite Murder before. If there were ever a punchable voice, it belongs to Charles Holmes, and Van’s voice sounds like his vocal cords were smashed through a cheese grater, but besides that, LOVE THIS POD.

Love it

So glad I found this pod. Van and Charles are Ringer MVPs
