    32:34    The legendary Sean McDowell graced us at a Porch Tour stop with KDKA-TV meteorolgist, Ray Petelin.  Are the really just common Pittsburghers??

    37:09    Natalie Bencivenga is a modern-day Katherine Hepburn with grace and skill according to Rachael. She stopped by Rach’s 100th episode along with other faves like Russell Howard and Paul and Shelly.

    39:44     Our PTL ladies finally caved and let us invade their porch!  Jill and Marie—the duo who make PTL a hit let us bring the podcast to them and find out what some cues mean and how to tame some nervy guests.

    48:06     A reflection podcast would not be complete without John’s absolute fave Greg Brown who hangs out with Handy Andy Amrheing to talk Pirates, toilets, Christmas lights and selling houses to the new Pirates’ manager.  While this podcast is only a few weeks old, any time is a good time to talk about Greg!

My Favorite Podcast

As a podcaster myself, I know how difficult it is to produce a good show. The YaJagoff team knocks it out of the park! It's my favorite podcast because of the excellent Pittsburgh chat, but because you get to learn everything that's going on in town. Listen, especially if you're a proud Pittsburgh!
