Out Of Office Podcast

Slightly biased, but love this podcast!

I'm undecided on whether I want to continue listening to these podcasts. The first few times I listened to it, it wasn't particularly intriguing because it's probably not my style. You can play this song repeatedly; you can develop an addiction to it

I can't decide if I want to listen to more of these podcasts....*sigh* some of this was good.... some of it was serious eye rolls (imminent doom ... really?).
