No, no, no!!

Okay, I was sooooo psyched to download the new podcast and then ARGH! IT SUCKED! What happened to the sitting around in the bathroom discussing pop culture and other events? PLEASE do more old school podcasts! You can start charging iTunes prices and I will pay!! Seriously!! I am begging!!


Ignore previous comment. I was ignorant of the fact that popaganda is a separate deal. I LOVE LOVE LOVE popaganda. LOVE IT.

Thanks so much!

More Popaganda to come this week! Any topic suggestions?

Thanks so much for listening!

i kno rite

tell me how you really feel about the issue podcast?

the director of the sucky podcast

no again...

i'm so sorry, kjerstin. i should have been clearer when i said i was the ignoramus who didn't know the difference between an ISSUE-based podcast and a POPOGANDA cast...sadly, i am of the "more entertained by listening to everyone talk about recent stuff and maybe mock twilight" than the "i appreciate art" ilk. it doesn't reflect on your podcast, which i am sure was reflects on my own verbal diarrhea. hmmm, am i allowed to say that? again, my apologies.

also, am i the only person who ever panics just a little bit at the simple math question required to comment? like someday i will forget how to add or something?

: )

It's okay, I know you are a Bitch fan and wasn't totally offended. We all really appreciate that you listen to Popaganda, and that's why we have multiple audio segments anyway! And also you're not an ignoramus.

And you can always sign-up for a username (your email isn't shared with anyone) so that you can login to Bitch and not have to answer those math questions.
