@flippyandnod: Just as a note, I didn't mention Brad (beyond his reckoning with Dan) because he's the most OG member of the Bombcast crew after Jeff, and I was generally talking about people coming and going. I probably should have mentioned Brad's hosting though, and I agree that it's great. He is more engaged, and while I wouldn't quite characterize his prior contributions in the same way you do I am glad to see more come out of him. It's also just structurally better to have a more grounded personality in the hosting position so that the madness (Jeff, Dan) can come in from the edges. That's why The Hotspot with host Rich Gallup and On the Spot with host Ryan Davis worked so well, and why things sometimes got a little flat when Jeff subbed in.
We have more and better Brad now, and it's making for better podcasts.
