Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Let's talk talk radio - Why have discussions when you can listen?

I don't know how many other people are into it, but listening to people talk rather than doing the talking is fun and intriguing stuff. As long as what's being said is funny or worth hearing. Podcasts achieve this through the internet but hey, it all goes back to radio.
Locally, in my piece of crap slice of Texas, there's a show that plays in the mornings called The Big Show, with John Boy and Billy. Not the greatest stuff, but sometimes they have decent sketches to play out. They're INTO Nascar and are right-wingers so I don't really care to listen to all of their show.
Probably my biggest turn-on for talk radio though is Howard Stern, even if he's on a subscribed service now. And yeah, I'm subscribed to it as of today (mostly 'cause I found out you can listen through the net, I thought you needed an XM tuner) (it was a long time coming). Been listening to him on and off since I was in gradeschool. And I'm really hard pressed to find anyone who also likes listening to him. Bullshit reasons on why people don't like him, though, are easy to find.
We can't forget there's other people on the airwaves like Rush and Hannity and Glenn Beck (self-appointed messenger of God), and that most of the airwaves are controlled by right-wing interests, but there's gems out there to be found.
I don't know how many other people on the forum bother listening to talk radio, but I figured it's worth a shot to find out. Who do you guys listen to and why? Depending on how this goes I can juice up this OP.
