The Anthropocene Reviewed:
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing:

 (00:00) to (02:00)

H: Hello, and welcome to Dear Hank & John!
J: Or as I prefer to think of it, Dear John & Hank.
H: It's a comedy podcast, where two brothers answer your questions, give you dubious advice, and bring you all the week's news from both Mars and AFC Wimbledon. I've heard some good things about AFC Wimbledon, John, but I guess we'll get to that later. How you doing?
J: I'm doing well. Hank, as you may know, I've, for many months, been promising to do a podcast called "The Anthropocene Reviewed," in which I review different facets of the human-centered planet, and I have made that podcast, uh and it is available for download now, wherever you get your podcasts. Anywhere,
H: That's, jeez.
J: And, and, right now it's actually number 9 on the iTunes charts so, even though
H: Oooh.
J: ..."anthropocene" is very hard to spell, and it's kinda hard to search for "The Anthropocene Reviewed." The first episode's been doing very well. It's about Canada Geese, uh, which a bird species that almost went extinct, about 90 years ago, and now, uh, is something of a pest species, I would argue, and Diet Dr. Pepper, the zero calorie soda that I argue in this episode of "The Anthropocene Reviewed," is one of the greatest achievements in the history of the human species.
H: I've, I mean I feel like we-we hit the sponsorships early, John. 
J: Hahahahaha
H: Is that what has occurred?
J: Haha well, I just wanted to get it out there, you know? You can go search for "the Anthropocene Reviewed" and listen- it's only 17 minutes long. It's not like and episode of "Dear Hank & John," where you gotta put, like, an hour of your life into it--
H: That's true
J: Woah, Hank, I just looked- I just saw an email from you. Ho boy!
H: Yeah! So I have, I have stuff going on as well!
J: Woah!
H: We both have lots...
J: I love these!
H: ...of things going on, and have been, really, uh, it's been a stressful week, but one of the things that has happened, is, uh, I just got some book covers in and I, I sent these ones to John because I like them.
J: Do you like them? I like all these fi- it's five of them that I'm looking at right now...
H: There's five.
J: ...and I, unfortunately, I think the bad news is that I like all five. A lot. Do you like them?
H: I like them a lot. The first- the first, uh, the first round I liked less and I didn't even send to you. And this one, this one's I like a lot, especially like the middle one...
