You’ve got to like Squirrels and Tangents

Dead Robot’s Society is my go to writer’s podcast for pearls of wisdom and some seriously funny entertainment. With Terry’s squirrel brain and Paul’s tangents it keeps my attention from beginning to end. If you don’t like unprofessional humor, swear words and the occasional jabs at each other this isn’t the podcast for you. Find a more clean cut professional podcast. But for me this is absolutely awesome. When I am up at 5:30 in the morning getting ready for work these two goofballs help put me in a good mode and get me ready to face the day. Hands down entertaining and informative.

Fantastic show
