    My friends and I like listening to your podcast (but especially me. I’m the Dan Cummins founder and passer-arounder) in classes and during lunch time. It’s so cool to get more content from you since your other works of standup always satisfied my emptiness before. I appreciate ya, Dan. Keep up the good work.

    Great job on the podcast, came over from your pandora channel and have finally caught up to the new episodes. I don’t know if you’re familiar with the Fermi Paradox but I think it would be a great topic, it deals with the idea of aliens, civilizations, and what could lead to the death of humanity. Keep the episodes rolling and I keep listening.
