Fantastic idea! Short. Funny. Completely lacking substance. I think you have something here.

(And, yes...It will always be racist)

Andrew also runs Yo, Should I Dump This Asshole? which is equally as depressing as his other Tumblr.

As long as rustling isn't mentioned, I see no problem. Looking forward to listening to this.

Yo, You Got Out of Bed and Set Up the Mics For This?

I was excited to learn, after an indefinitely long absence, that Earwolf had a "new" podcast dedicated to my third favorite uncomfortable subject. I hit play, turned up the volume and began to clean house. It sounded good but I was still waiting for the water to get hot when you were done. Brevity is a malevolent spirit possessing the soul of a glutted medium that is usually enjoyed on the go. Since you're already in the studio you could perhaps answer more questions and ask your guest about their experiences with racism.

If you haven't got more to say than can be said on your Twitter feed then you don't deserve a podcast.

In Philly, we called all (any color) sprinkles 'jimmies'.
