I guess this could go under a rambling, thank you gush of a thread.
But seriously.
Obviously new to EP but it's made me think, how did I survive all these years not knowing about this podcast?
Remarkable how I found this, one day while browsing a Wikipedia article about Issac Asimov, I stumbled upon a link to escapepod.org. I listened, liked it and subscribed.
Now, thanks to my predilection for running while listening to podcasts I've lost about five pounds and my asthma's getting better!
I'm merely a poor college student now, but when I graduate in May you will be getting most of my money.
I was beginning to think people like this didn't exist. People who enjoy scifi, not for the savant-like obsession of memorizing and rattling off all the family members of some ambassador to a world of post-apocalyptic, zombified, half-cyborg creatures. But people who enjoy scifi for the human element that can only be admired from a distance. To observe ourselves as another creature would see us. That's fascinating.
I love hearing the reviews you people post. The well constructed arguments for or against a story. That's science. 
I work in a hospital and I see a lot, I mean a lot of dumb people, but Steve Eley you've given me my faith in humanity back.
Just the ability to hear intelligence once a day on my morning run gives me the motivation to save a life.
I'm so glad you're back, I was really worried.     
Long live EscapePod!

Be careful!  There are some episodes that will make people look at you funny, either because you are laughing or crying or both!

Welcome to the cult!  um...er...

The good news is, there's a lot of us. And plenty who havent even been turned on to Ep yet. :)

(dont be so quick to dismiss the fanboys/girls either.. plenty of them are also interested in the more subtle aspects of sci fi and just choose to join in the chorus when people go off about stuff.. :)).
