We have a ton of things that we want to do for our audience and we are constantly trying different things to bring those ideas to life.  This episode we are launching a campaign to raise money to improve the show and give back to our audience.

We are asking that if you enjoy the show to pledge some money per episode.  50 cents, a dollar, 5 dollars, whatever you feel is fair.  It only amounts to a few bucks a month, but what we plan to do with that money is upgrade our recording equipment, buy more gear that we will review and give away to our audience and all kinds of other things.  The rewards are listed on the site.

If you enjoy the show and want to help, please visit and see what we put together.

User feedback and user questions

Dolphin Haters!

Rating: 5 Stars

As a dolphin, I am completely offended by this show. When the Man VS Dolphin war finally begins, you jerks are first. Starting with Aaron……I’ve got something special for him. Let’s just say..if dolphins wore pants…it would be in my pants.

Robbie Rea (United States of America)

Never A Dull Moment

Rating: 5 Stars

Except when Aaron is talking…I’m kidding. It’s a great podcast that covers a huge range of topics with a great panel of host and numerous guest hosts also. I’m always looking forward to another episode.
