I once saw a study (back in the days of, “oops I did it again”) that said the most catchy song out there in America is "it’s a small world after all "
You’re welcome. Or thank your government, they gave a lot of good money to allow for that study (long ago forgot how much… But good studies don’t come cheap!)

@IWUJackson I don’t have to even play it again, just the mention of it brings backed looped deliriums of being trapped in a small boat going in circles and hearing that song sung over and over by thousands of robot children from all lands …
@IWUJackson@stolicat Haha! That happened to me, too! A colleague and I decided to do Disneyland while on a business trip many years ago. Got on one of those boats going through the castle, and after about two minutes my head was about to explode. Then the ride malfunctioned and we were stuck in the boat for about 15 minutes.
Okay, I think I like it. I started with the Crime Machine, parts 1 & 2. I was a little confused at first because PJ Vogt sounded EXACTLY like Ira Glass to me lol. Then I went back and started from the beginning. PJ must have had voice coaching or something that turned him into Ira because he sounds more natural in the beginning (if not a little uneven)
I’ve listened to the episodes up to the one about the JennyCam. Boy, that’s some interesting internet history. It really took me back to “in the day”. I remember JennyCam and how it spawned a bunch of other sites heh. Now that we’re all sheltered in our bunkers the cam sites might do a brisk business lately.
@therealjrn Glad you liked it. PJ’s enunciation is a bit sloppy at times. My youngest can’t stand “up-talkers” and so she gives me a bit of grief if she’s around while I’m listening.
Even if an episode topic really doesn’t catch my interest, I’ve found there’s always something I come away with I didn’t know before. The “YesYesNo” episodes can be pretty amusing. “Long Distance, 1 & 2” is a fun adventure into the world of phone scammers from India. “The Snapchat Thief” really opened my eyes to just how dark the internet can be.
Try “On the Inside” if you liked the “Crime Machine” episodes. There are several episodes devoted to an inmate who managed to write a blog for several years.
