Think Zoltar, but more prospectory. Which may or may not be a word.

This week’s show has even more WTF than the Oscars, so break out the earbuds and roll around naked in a giant pile of Vegas.

    I’m not exactly salivating over this podcast. Not that interested in a critic’s pick for steakhouses, and I’m not a foodie, which makes me a bad person, I know.

    If I thought there’d be any good info about the future of 18 Fremont, I’d be moist. But I’m not expecting any tantalizing tidbits.Perhaps I’ll be stunned. Hey, if it can happen to Warren Beatty…

    But I’ll listen, and perhaps be surprised. By the way, do downloads include the number of people who have actually listened? I have a few old episodes downloaded that I’ve never listened to, so do those count in the $108K+ tally?
