    So I haven’t finished listening to the issue yet but I just had to share: I started the podcast on my drive home from work and when I got home I could tell the news segment was just about done so I stayed in the car to finish and when Mathew said Cartoon Network could buy 20 episodes of super dinosaur “and air two per year for the next ten years,” I laughed out loud by myself sitting in my car in the drive way at 2am for a good full minute. Made my night! Thanks for the great end to the day. Can’t wait to finish the episode tomorrow.
