Changing things up this list will be all about the quotes provided at the start of each episode giving initial context into the philosophical type show. Comedy alone there is a list although the words at the beginning of episodes are from some of the most influential people from history. Knowing more than 2 thirds of the names, maybe the remaining view can be their own quote lists on UNGROOVYGORDS. Read my review below for more details and the following list is in categorical order.
