Listener email:
Hey Simulcast crew!

I was just listening to this weeks past show and wanted to email you since it seems not enough listeners do so… The past handful of shows have by far been the best in the entire life of the Simulcast. I love the direction you’ve taken. The informal approach mixed with actual, educated tech talk makes you guys seem really down to earth and not think of yourselves as iconic and unapproachable figures. You’re simply a show for the people.

Other than that, keep up what you’re doing. You each bring a different aspect in and I love it. Keeps things interesting.

We should start a donate or request button on the site to decide what beer Geoff drinks each week, and possibly pay for it. That’d be entertaining.
Thanks guys!
