The BeanCast

BeanCast 76: More Than Just Mail


I got all the way through the show before it hit me just how much of a powerhouse lineup we had on the program tonight. I mean I knew these guys were big names, but every once in a while I get a flash of perspective and realize just how cool having this show can be.

With this group it was a complete treat to be a host. They were all sharp talkers who knew the subjects well and provided energetic debate on the subjects at hand. I could barely get a word in edgewise. Like I said on Twitter earlier, if you don't listen to this episode I'll have to personally come out and smack you.

And speaking of Twitter, add me to your Twitter profile. I'm TheBeanCast. As always, thanks for listening and please add a positive review to iTunes if you like the show.
