I'm not sore if anyone from the show actually reads these comments but just in case they do i wanted to make a suggestion. I think that you should edit/cut the part of the intro where Sean says he wishes his voice was different. I think I understand the marketing/pr reasons behind it but it makes me a little sad when I hear him saying something negative about his voice when as a fan it's one of the things I love about him. I loved it on Will and Grace and love hearing it on this podcast. I listen to a lot of podcasts, audio books and all the other things people listen to and the one thing, for me, that makes or breaks any of those are boring voices. I think a script that has Sean acknowledge the ongoing feedback about his voice in a more positive way could connect better. I binge listened to your show today after discovering it. Great idea. A fan

IPA - India Pale Ale. Ale with a lot of hops which have antiseptic properties. Was added to ale so the ale would survive the 6 month trip to India without spoiling.
