this show continues to lose my "listens", due to the strategic ad placements and their extreme lengths. I'm yet to encounter another podcast, no matter how successful, that has this length of ad time to content ratio. especially this intricately placed. it's becoming not worth the content.

27:10 -- not based on an existing IP? The Lion King was based on Kimba The White Lion. There were even photos circulating at the time of one of the animators wearing a Kimba t-shirt. I adored The Lion King, and still do, but it definitely was a retelling of Kimba.

I used to have a thank you light. It took 4 AA batteries, suction cupped to the rear window, and was WAY too big to be safe. I would love an official light designed to work with thre car and not obstruct visibility

I like the ads for Libby because Libby is an app that lets you access your library's database for free and I hate audible.

Bull penis chew toys are called bully sticks or pizzles. they may contain harmful bacteria because they're dried but not cooked.

In a college course one of the books I was required to buy and read a book I discovered that I hated with a passion. The book showed me a part of the world where men held most of the power and some abused that power. I hated it because it I knew it was real and I didn't know how to improve things. When I finished the course a friend suggested I burn the book as a form of catharsis. It helped. I will point out that I owned said book and it burning it was a form of therapy. I don't make a habit of burning books. I would not have chosen to buy that book except it was for a class and I learned quite a lot. Not all knowledge is enjoyable.

The miles v. time argument ignores context, which defines how distance will be referenced in any news story. Map distance is standard, travel time is specified when relevant. There is no standard way to describe generic travel time because people drive at different speeds, some take buses, some avoid expressways, etc. Clarity is the most important factor. "The firefighters cover two towns that are 5 miles apart but an hour's drive because of twisting roads and hilly terrain." Like that.

I have enjoyed your radiola program on many a restful evening as I enjoyed a mixed beverage, or on a scenic drive in my motored carriage, and have grown to think of you as an as yet unaquainted friend. Though you have pronounced judgement on more than a few things that I have taken issue with, or I have occasionally taken some small offense as I had felt you had misreasoned or had reasoned more by quirk of personal taste and not with an ardor for absolute justice, I caution myself that you are a wise and good man. Though you may not always have the right of things your charm and good nature have always carried the day. Isn't he a caution, I would muse. But, good sir, when you malign buttered popcorn Jelly Bellies, you malign me. Without so much as a by your leave you cast them down in the coarse language of some sort of border ruffian or rustic brute! There I was in a state no better described as knocked into a cocked hat, my patent bitters bespilt on my fainting clothes, so taken aback was I in mute horror of your transgress! By the Horn Spoon, I am exfluncticated! Never before had I experienced such pique in all of my days as an old-timey character invented for the purposes of an eccentric complaint letter. My most fervent wish is that the express brings this to you at full chisel so you may know my pique, you humbug potentate!

I hate the idea that if you're going to be in a long term committed relationship that you have to get married, and then immediately have kids. Whenever dog ownership comes up on this show he immediately goes to "you planning to have kids?". Also cats are good in any home. We have a decently sized household and 2 cats and both of them love every family member.
