My Close Personal Friend Adam Savage™ does a lot of fun stuff with the folks at Tested.com, including a podcast with Tested founders Will Smith and Norman Chan called Still Untitled: The Adam Savage Project. The three of them ostensibly have a topic to cover, but they always seem to wind up all over the place in the discussion, which is pretty much how all my conversations with Adam go.

It’s pretty entertaining, as you’d expect; getting three smart, interesting people together to talk about stuff is generally a good listen. But their episode from Nov. 24, titled “So About That UFO,” is especially good, for two reasons. One is that they talk about the Trident missile launch from early November that freaked so many people out in California.

The other reason is that they spend a full minute talking about what a great guy I am. Modesty prevents me from agreeing with them whole-heartedly and praising their obvious excellent taste, so instead why don’t you just give it a watch?

The good part starts at 4:07. Seriously, it was very kind of them to say such wonderful things, and honestly, back atcha, gents. I got a chance to hang with all three of them for a while at San Diego Comic Con this past summer, and it was a lot of fun. 

Untitled is great, and you can find it on the Tested site linked above, or the audio-only version is on iTunes. Subscribe! Enjoy!
