The jingle about backing your car into another car and getting angry is so funny. I love all of the podcast stuff though to be honest! But that one seriously made me chuckle. Thanks for all the laughs!

THANK YOU FOR INCLUDING ALL THIS INFORMATION. I DON'T LIKE MAKING NOTES WHILE LISTENING, IT PREVENTS GIGGLING.

Hi Adam,
Quick comment to let you know I love the podcast, always a highlight when I see it plop into my itunes feed.
Louis is a great guest and I think Louis doing Baccara's I love to boogie must be my favourite podcast moment ever.

Cheers
Robin
