  1. Sitting at my desk this morning listening to the podcast, I hear Stephen say “RWJ” and though I knew what it meant, I immediately started going “What obscene thing could I come up with for this acronym?”

    Before I could come up with too many horribel things, Matthew’s voice cuts off my thoughts by saying “Shame on you.”

    And that, gentlemen, is how I knew this was going to be a good podcast and a good day.

    • The fact that I wrote “though” instead of “thought” and “horribel” instead of “horrible” is going to haunt me now.
