I haven’t listened to the podcast and I’m sure it is great. But I can’t help but see on the cover that one of the guys has two fingers up with his knuckles facing towards to camera. if you are from England, you would probably know that the guy is making a very crude gesture and I happened to find it very annoying.

Mike is funny. And finally I see a photo of Ira Glass. Mike is so good I wanted to watch the videos of interviews with him and Ira. He was more annoying there. Stick to the podcast.
