When it’s discovered in about five years or so that I’ve suffered permanent, irreparable damage to my eardrums (and I mean more than the constant ringing I’ve heard since I was seventeen from concerts) because I spent way too many hours with my headphones on, it won’t be the music that will take the immediate blame.
It’s because of Ricky Gervais’ laughter piercing my head every time he finds something funny. It’s worth it, though. These guys make me laugh like a moron so often I’ve had to stop listening to the podcasts in public (although it made today’s treadmill miles fly by).
If you haven’t heard one of these yet (and you don’t need an iPod, Chris), you’re missing out.
