One day, a couple of us were talking about our favorite radio programs and podcasts and why we like them. We realized that we e really drawn to the ones that make us laugh (do we listen to Car Talk for advice on cars? We do not). And we realized that we e lucky enough to have a group of friends who make us laugh like that. So we thought, We should talk with those guys more often. And maybe we should turn it into a podcast. But not a "heres whats new" podcast or an interview podcast or anything that would resemble a traditional podcast. Instead, we decided to try to put something different on a podcast: reality. Not a show, not a production, not "reality" as in "reality TV," where people jump in vats of scorpions and get fired by The Donald and vote each other off the island and basically do all sorts of unreal stuff -- "reality" as in, just the four of us, shooting the breeze, sometimes talking about serious subjects, sometimes talking about seriously trivial subjects, but above all, having fun. And if we like it (which we do), maybe youll like it too.
