    So, I cancelled my Sirius subscription a while back, mostly because I was sick of Stern and it was my way of making a statement. Mad Dog radio was okay, but not enough for me to justify keeping it.

    Fast forward to today. I've been listening to O&A podcasts and I am enjoying them. Problem is, that the podcasts are pretty old and most aren't current, so I'd appreciate your recommendations and suggestions.

    1. Is the O & A show as good today as it was in those older podcasts clips, circa 2006 and older? Has anything changed?
    2. Is Jim Norton still pretty much a regular?
    3. Do they usually put in a full week or take off a lot?
    4. Which package do you recommend? a) Internet Radio w/ iPhone. b) Sirius All Access (the only other way I can get O&A on my Sportster), plus I believe it gives me Sirius XM Internet as well. c) Another way.
    5. Sirius keeps offering me deals in the mail to come back, but that's for standard Sirius (no O&A). Does Sirius discount Sirius XM Internet or the Sirius All Access packages? Their reps are sometimes misinformed and hard to understand.

    Thanks.

    Nothing has really changed since 2006 except they have a pre/post show.

    Norton is almost on every day - he is a paid part of the show.

    They usually put in a full week. A few years ago they started to not vacation at the same time so either O or A are usually there (sometimes they do take a full week off).

    The reps are always idiots... keep calling back or asking for the retention department until you get someone with a clue.

    I have the all access and I just call every few months and threaten to cancel and usually get 50% off. I think last time I called a few weeks ago they gave me a deal for a year at 50% off.

    all their shows end up on youtube and they dont really give a fuck if u steal it, or google afroandfriends if u want to get them in mp3

    best stuff is the patrice o'neal eps, they are all on youtube if u want to get into o&a thats the best place to start

    norton is on most days and they usually do 5days a week and stagger vacations to maximize # of days of live content however this summer there has been some talk of taking a lot of 3 day weekends at least by opie. i would not be surprised if the show goes to 4 days a week for most of the summer

    Now they just mentioned that their studio was supposed to be redone while they were gone, but one person may have been the reason it was not done. Wonder who that one person is.:jj:

    Thanks for the helpful responses. Very much appreciated!

    By the way, I took the "free" internet offer (1 month), so I can listen via my iPhone and computer for now.

    I caught part of the show just as she came on. She kind of reminded me of Mary from Brooklyn light. Seemed forced and contrived. Love their goofing on John Sterling's home run calls (I name myself after that clown here and SFN). The TI appearance was pretty good too. Have to catch up with what preceded this later today.

    I'm a relatively new listener. I started listening last year and went back and listened to most of their best of. I wasn't a fan of Lady Di until I heard that dumb fucking cunt Sandy Kane. I will say this- if you haven't listened to 8-track porn, iron sheik, dave rabbit, or LouisCK/DonRumsfeld bits, definitely youtube them or download them on the podcast app on itunes. Most of what they have posted is hilarious.

    I second 8track porn that is too funny ,also the face/off and independance day bits are good as well as patrices legendary rant on chinese people

    Also the joe piscapo saga and ian halperin saga are awesome I love ian halperin he is up there on elegant elliot level in terms of just being a total weirdo and u can't tell if its an act or what,listen to the ian stuff from the beginning. Amazing that howard had him on and didn't get into hs weird personal life
