ORly Radio Show 78 - The Nope, The Dope, and the Pope.

Welcome to ORly Radio Show 78 for Friday September 25th, 2015 - where we dismantle the current events for your edutainment through mostly rational conversations that make you go ‘Oh Really’! I’m your host Andy Cowen with my usual suspect Michael and an unusual suspect Ophelia Falls.

You can find Ophelia here: http://opheliainthedark.tumblr.com/

Michael is over here: http://fathergrigorivonklaussen.tumblr.com/

Errata From Last Week: We make mistakes. Please, if you find one, pause the podcast, and send us a note. orlyradiopodcast@gmail.com or phone it in 470-222-6759  Last week I took the day off. If you don’t want me to do that anymore, follow the links to support the show. I sure appreciate all of you listening, but boy, I do get tired.

A shout out to one of our listeners that realized we can get text messages. They said, This past show was amazing.  The addition of Ophelia was the bee’s knees.  I hope she plans to come back. The three of you together is awesomesauce. I didn't want the show to end. Keep up the great work,  you guys really are great.” And that was the best news of all. Thank you, and to all the listeners and voyers out there. This show is for you.
