Glad to see the new version of a fun, informative show.

I really enjoy this and many other net casts on the TWIT network.

OK so maybe +Daniel Ek didn't mention us at the new Spotify launch - but he did point to us anyway. Sort of.   #newspotify

+Leo Laporte You mentioned on TWIG that you really don't have much of a following here.  522K plus isn't bad here, but yes, you are short of the 2.6M that Taylor Swift has... but still, that is not too shabby!
