I'd like to chime in and say that this is the first GWJ podcast I've listened to, and I enjoyed it. I listened to it today with my girlfriend on a hour-drive-each-way trip, and we had good time. The mechanical keyboard bits drew quite a few giggles.

Wait. For almost 7 years you've been coming here and you haven't heard the podcast before? Wow!

Audio's cool and all, but I think we all know that GWJ's writing is what really makes this place awesome. ;)

58 posts is all it took for someone to note that. And it was the editor. Sheesh.

To be fair, I wasn't wearing my editor's hat (pictured here, at left) when I said that.

True! I've rarely listened to podcasts. Usually I have NPR going in the car (otherwise I'm faced with the alternative; a few gospel/preachin' stations and a handful of contemporary country stations), but on the weekend they have this old guy who drones on for hours and has generally awful musical guests. I'm sure he's some sort of comedy legend or something, but it lulls me into a nearly catatonic state (which isn't the safest for driving).

Anyway, I thought, why not check out the cheeky chaps on GWJ? They do a weekly yap-erooni if memory serves, and my stylin' gold 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix sports the adapter to make it happen.

I wanted to thank you for the podcasts. As a gamer with a job (and kids), I don't get to play games as much as I did in days gone by. Although as my kids age, I am able to play slightly more games and some day (after she sleeps for like year) my wife may be able to as well. I love the conversatons be they about IOS games, keyboards, or board games. The podcasts allows me to remember as I work that just because I dont have time to dance the music hasn't stopped.

Congrats. 1998 week was awesome. I am wondering how awesome a new keyboard would be.
