Really very little content. All ad's , summary and recaps. Weak. Don't waste your time people.

I live 10 minutes from where this happened. Although I was very young at the time, I do remember my parents being glued to the TV and all of the craziness surrounding this. Great podcast. It really brings back memories!

It would be easier to feel more involved if the episodes were longer. Most of them (after ads and titles) last around 15 mins.
