Almost Live Almost News. We’re not trying to confuse anybody with this one. It’s not quite live and, frankly, it’s not quite news either. Our loosely structured show covers everything from entertainment and sports to politics and world events. Oh, and booze. We’ll probably talk about booze… Give us a try, hopefully we don’t totally waste your time. Have a suggestion? Want to hear our take on a particular subject? Let us know! Thanks for listening! -Ben and Sean
