Recidivism seems to be unavailable. I know there was a virus warning long ago. Pretty sure that was taken care of.

That place was like a vortex the way it sucked you in. First, you'd read the masterful show description (with links) then feel compelled to go back and listen to the entire episode. Wonderfully written. Hugely time-consuming.

Maybe he took it down so he could compile and release it in book form.

He claimed he had written more than a million words devoted to the Best Show.

How many words are there in War and Peace?

The site is dead, but archived. Perhaps the content will resurface somewhere, someday, one never knows now does one.

The site was attacked many times, mostly by Russians, presumably with the help of Mark Putinberg (I have to pay Spike $5 in royalties every time I use that).

Thanks, Fred!

oo i love this recap thing!! good for when we wanna go back and do supercuts nd stuff.

is there any kind of wiki things since http://bestshow.wikia.com/wiki/The_Best_Show_on_WFMU? would be fun to make notes and stuff about the episodes in a recap/wiki type organized thing!

I know, but it will cost you a nickle to get me to tell.
