  1. Big congratulations on 400 Brian. Here’s to many, many more – 2008 will be the year of the Ibbott I hope, when everyone realises that Coverville is the best podcast out there.

  2. 400 shows – impressive. Do I get anything for listening to all 400?

    One comment, The Hot Stewards sound a lot like Bloc Party. I had to look and see who was singing.

    Great show as always.

  3. Congratulations on 400. This was an excellent show, Brian! You should do it every year, round numbers or not. I like the idea of /your/ countdown list!
