11 Good Things About High Gas Prices - 11 Points Countdown
written by Sam Greenspan

After a few weeks without episodes (entirely due to me being out of town and screwing up our schedule like some sort of Raquel Welch-esque diva) we're back with new episodes of the 11 Points Countdown.

In this episode, I'm joined by podcasting superstar Colin Marshall to discuss the good things about high gas prices. Yes, they're going down right now, but they'll be back up again soon -- at which point this episode will go from quasi-relevant to hugely relevant.

If you enjoy, or even if you don't but you enjoy an angel getting its wings, please take a moment to subscribe to my 11 Points Countdown YouTube channel. Thank you, as always, for your support.
