My favorite podcast
Is it a show or an Ad?
Last weeks show sounded like a scripted Sony ad and it was gross. Seemed hosts were reading there lines. Hope it was worth it....
Paul and Reiner have a great banter and I get more of this podcast than almost any video gane podcast. Awesome guys keep it up!
