  4. I was waiting for more of an exchange between Brent and Rob and this finally had some. Although it wasn't necessary related to music, I find that when the two have more of an exchange, it really adds to the enjoyment of the podcast. In this case, the hosts talked about taking marital arts when they were younger and their experiences around it interesting.

    I will always find it funny when Rob brings up "Genesis does what Nintendon't."

    Another great episode.
