Blind Bargains Qast 31: Does it Work With Voiceover?

Recorded just mere hours after the big Apple Event on September 9th, Joe brings in the big guns to talk about everything iDevice with Buddy Brannan and BBQ Regular Shelly Brizbin.
We've tossed the weekly news line up aside and dedicated the bulk of the show to our "Discussion Topic". Well, that and the "Last Word". With J.J. off this week, does that mean a food mention at the end of the show? uh, probably.
