Kyle the ROCK(jock)


For two hundred straight weeks, this show has be availability on or about every Sunday.  So, to, uh, celebrate, we did this one like most of our first hundred shows.  That’s right, freaks – The ROCK(Jock) makes a triumphant return to the podcast, bring his crotchety, jaded, yet unique perspective to this week’s reviews.

…and by “sun” I mean Internet. Sorry—the irony of co-opting Crazy Uncle Randy’s lyrics for this purpose tickled me in a way that was just too good to pass up.
