    You guys make me want to be a writer. I think we all have that novel in our heads that we want to get out and sell. I think I should start one and just keep at it when I can. I liked all your advice for new writers.

    Hey, we aim to be useful as WELL as funny. And a compliment like this from the Godfather of Podcasting is a true compliment.

    So when are you coming on the show?
