This is a seriously addicting podcast. Most claim that that's after you get past the retching, but I loved AHG from day 1-hour 1.
They spend a good portion talking about their lives... Which is normally something I wouldn't be interested in. But the personalities make that part of the episode both amusing and entertaining. I could listen to this podcast if it was JUST that. And I hate reality shows.
But to have such smart, honest people, with day to day things; it's great.
Christy is about the best thing since sliced bread. She's funny, smart, sarcastic, and brutally honest. Singing songs and opening the show in amusing ways, or talking about her crazy cats (that should totally be on the show too). She's the e-peen jokes, the horror stories, and the gay man electrocuting himself.
Mike is the other half with his DND, geeking out, maniacal laughter, and quick whit. With his interesting attempts to weave plot and entertainment into his DND games, his different, but sensible, way of looking at every situation and random road trips that are work related. He's yer average joe, but not so average. And it'd never be the same without him.
Then they brought in Thay, who has to be the best thing that happened to AHG when Bad Chris left. With his past speech impedimate coming out from time to time, his tripping with beer, and singing random songs when everything goes quiet for over 5 minutes. The only thing better then that is when Christy breaks him.
It's good times, good humor, mature themes, rotting food, poop on kitten paws, painting rooms, and gaming.
They are up to date on news, on top of every thing, and off topic often. And it's perfect.
I'd tell you to listen, but I shouldn't have to. This podcast is everything you should be looking for. And the fans obsessions with going back and re-listening to 3-4 hour episodes is both reasonable and understandable.
