How many people have you converted to PP (or EP or PC for that matter) and how?

I sent my friend and mp3 of the first white street society and he's been hooked ever since. I love converting people to like things I like (control freak alert), I remember I got my parents into radiohead and was happy all week, but that's off the topic. I have converted three people to regular PP listeners- my brother (who's maybe just a tad young, so I do filter what he gets), and two of my friends. How's about you?

My wife, children (filter episodes for them), and various and sundry nieces and nephews.  Pretty much the group that went to the Jonathan Coulton concert with me. 

My coworkers are into NASCAR and WWE and their eyes start to glaze over when I talk about SFF.   ;)

When will all the rhetorical questions end?

Thus far: I've convreted My daughter. The rest of my (regular and extended) family refuses to be tech savy enough to enjoy it. I keep trying, but I am also around people whose eyes glaze when SFF (or heck, any type of story) comes up.  This sorta sucks, but I'll keep trying.

Oh mighty Mur the Magnificent. I am not worthy.

I tie people up and make them listen to it while I grind keys.  It's a hobby.

If they criticize it - like the guy that said Ben Phillips sounds like Christian Slater on downers - I cut them into little pieces, lightly wok, and feed these to the more grateful people that swear they love it, love it, love it. 

Strangely enough, the longer episodes are really popular over here.  That's fine with me.  I'm very patient.

For myself, I've raved about PP to anyone who will listen, and tweeted often about PP in general and fave eps. For me, the PP 'casts have a consistently higher quality in both content and narrators than either of the other EA 'casts.

Understand, please: I'm not saying EP and PC are crap, far from it. It's just that PP almost always delights.
