Best BW-related podcast

I happened upon this podcast the first week they published it and have been listening ever since. This is the first podcast that I ever took the time to rate. These guys are good people—even if Adam IS a Packer fan. I almost wish they’d quit so the BW won’t grow in popularity. Wonder if they’d just call me up and talk about the BW and other things each week.

Perfect for not listening to news

The only thing political in this podcast is the fight to protect the park from sulfide ore mining. I have been listening for 4 months now catching up on all of the oldies. I can’t wait to sent them some beer.

EP: 99 Now with more concise dialogue!

I’m still listening...

That being said, you guys have gotten more concise which is a definite improvement!
