Flabbergasted Freeform No.16 – Eternal Aftershow Part 1

So maybe you thought it was gone for good, maybe you hadn’t even noticed, but for what it’s worth here is another Flabbergasted Freeform Radio Hour.  And just in time for the Olympics, with which this has absolutely nothing to do, not even an obligatory Vangelis Chariots of Fire appearance.  I understand why The Games excite people, I admire the athleticism, and I guess I can dig the philosophy of the spirit behind it all, maybe, but really I just … Continue reading
