I absolutely love this collection. It's a collection of bits done for the radio show when they were promoting Arguing With Idiots. I'd be annoyed by the repeated intro/bumper playing, but I'm too amused by a complaint in the recording from one of the stars about waking up at 4 in the morning with that intro stuck in his head. The only thing I don't really like is the long chunk of Van Jones audio when Glenn goes all ADD during one of the bits. Once I bookmarked it so I could skip around that part, it became perfect.
I'm a fan of Beck. I gave his last two books five stars, but I was a bit disappointed in this audio. I don't listen to his radio show, so I didn't really know what to expect, but this was just clips from what appeared to be prior to the book sale. They annoyingly play the jingle before and after every segment, which decreases the actual amount of audio (it says 1hr 10min... you can probably decrease that to 1hr). I was expecting to hear some actual on-air idiots, with Beck ripping them with the facts. Nope, it was just Beck playing both sides.. a preview of the book. If you have the original book, I don't think anything new was introduce.
