Podcast 027: Talking Smack

This week we discuss some listener comments, and then talk about the only thing that the media seems able to acknowledge, the slap heard around the world. After that, we juggle a geopolitical grenade or two, all in good fun. takeanumber@gentlemanssoapbox.com Twitter – @GSBCast
