Excellent Podcast

I stumbled across this podcast by accident - I was searching for fellow American cynics.

This is a great show. Give it a listen.

Pdffed off ,

Whiny

literally acoustically whiny and also philosophically whiny, not a cynic, rather an “individualist” with opinions about people other than him. no humility! no insight to the bigger picture! a real cynic is going to take himself to task before he puts together a public platform, so go back to the streets, dude!

Finally Some Talent

Love this podcast. It's a relief that a podcast exists with some actual talent. This guy is funny, witty, and his sarcastic rhetoric is outstanding. The voices are great! The stories are hillarious and his ability to illustrate the realities of today's issues without glossing over the facts like NPR and all the NPR wanna be shows do is fricken classic!
