I thought that the Christmas podcast was great. I especially enjoyed the gift ideas and the news that MULE Returns and Lost Treasures of Infocom were now available for iOS. I also enjoyed the book reviews as I have been thinking of reading "Finding the Next Steve Jobs". I can't wait for the next episode.

Just wanted to say thank you for recommending my Atari 8-bit tee. Love the podcast, though I almost never get to listen to the whole thing at once.
