I was searching for the hi-colonic jerk podcast when I stumbled across Dan's similarly-named product. It was immediately apparent that he is not your run-of-the-mill jerk. Dan Kaufman has managed to produce a very professional, interesting, sometimes cerebral and high-brow with just enough low-brow humor to keep it lite podcast. His topics are thought provoking and never mundane. Often, for several days afterwards, I find myself thinking about some of the points raised during the "shows".
Each podcast is better and more polished than the previous one, and, after listening to all five, I eagerly await the next installment. Give them a try. I'm sure you've spent five hours in less useful ways in your life so what have you got to lose? You might find that you enjoy them enough to recommend them to your friends, or, as in my case, to perfect strangers.
