  1. Richard says:

    Thanks, Dave. I really appreciate hearing that, especially now when I so often feel like a cog in a podcasting wheel.

  2. Richard says:

    …machine. I meant machine not wheel. I think.

  3. dave says:

    Richard, don’t let the wheels grind you up. And for god’s sake don’t OD on a toilet like Mr. Schneider did.

    “Thank you Masked Man.” Goddamn it, I think I like that. “Thank you Masked Man!”

  4. Dave, sometimes you nail it so perfectly I think you should be in the construction industry. The last 10 minutes of the episode was brilliant. The brief explanation is that I came up with the idea on a day when I had planned to sell my plasma, but couldn’t get to the plasma center, and decided that someone paying me $15 to write a blog post would actually make a difference in my life. I too am sick to death of folks who have sold companies for millions telling everyone else that they are selling out too cheap, or to not try to make any money blogging, or whatever it is they like to do.

    Pete, glad this resonated with you. To be honest, what I said seems to be so uncommon (ie, not one other person in the blogosphere that I read had the same take) that I was beginning to doubt my compass. That is, until Calcanis showed up and told me my points were stupid, then I began to think I was on to something.
