Sloppy Joe has been a podcast listener and supporter since the beginning, and now he is the first person featured in our listener spotlight. We've been enjoying his e-mails since he first contacted us back in 2007, and we even got the story behind his nickname and heard about when he lost his prom date to The Clash. Now we're taking Sloppy Joe's favorite part of the podcast seriously and plan on re-incorporating listener mail into our regular episodes.
