Hey guys!! I recently began listening to your podcast, and I love it!!  I listened to all of Season One, which was great as it helped me remember everything that went on back then.  And it got me to buy the Season One discs.  Now I listen each week to the current show.  I am really enjoying everything you do.  One thing that has been on my mind, and I shout into my headphones, is “What about Soren”?  Well, I guess now we know!!  This last episode was terrific and I can’t wait to hear what you have to say about it.  I will be heading over to Itunes to give you a 5 star rating. Keep up the good work!
