Podcast 95: The West Wing Series Wrap Up

  Woot Woot! What a grand television series The West Wing turned out to be. I think despite the way things ended we will always look back at this series as one of the best on television. The length of this podcast shows how reluctant we were to see The West Wing discussions come to an end - or it might just have been the fault of our special guests! We were incredibly pleased to have Listener Jim and the father of our podcast, Pete's friend Jon Madsen, join us for the series wrap-up. This podcast covers our awards, lists, and final thoughts about The West Wing.

Various topics discussed in this podcast include:
    Joey's Culture Corner: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
    Video of autistic girl communicating
    Principles of an American Life: Social Security Act of 1935
    A spider crawls up Jon's beard
    listener comments from The Gink, Listner Bob, and JD.
    Music Intro: Hear Me by Imagine Dragons
