Theses podcasts have kept me entertained and interested throughout their entirety! I'm not a huge podcast kinda guy (most bore me), but these are incredibly well done with interesting new guests on every show. Sauce (episode 10) has got to be one of the funniest guys I've ever listened to! Can't wait to see the next round of GD with Aaron podcasts.
