The Ghost of Pods Past Cast


This has nothing to do with anything, except that I found it while searching for "late".

Hang tight, kids!  Our 50th episode spectacular is shaping up to be so spectacular that it’s going to take a bit more time to complete than we thought.  You’ll have it hot from the oven, same time next week at the latest.

To thank you for your patience, we’ve decided to give you something to listen to in the meantime.  All 15 episodes of PodCorn, our little-heard first podcast series, unaltered and with original flavor text in tact.

Sure, the reviews are old, but this show never came out on time anyway.  They’re from a simpler time (before editing), so be gentle.  But, they may serve you well if you’re jonesing for your weekly fix of whatever-the-hell.

    Hey, thanks!

    PS I just remembered the time I borrowed two DVD’s from you, and never gave them back. Was that you?

    I think it was Lawnmower Man 2 and a home video you guys shot called “Walk the Darkness: Lawnmower Man 3”
