EVDO, Earballs and Bob Newhart

I just finished listening to one of the most entertaining podcasts I've come across in some time. Steve Gillmor's one to one conversation with Doc Searls regarding EVDO and the 'incumbents' reaffirmed the true value in podcasting to me. It felt at times like Ralph Kramden having an argument with Bob Newhart. Both sides of the conversation were smart and perhaps more importantly passionate. You will not find this kind of stuff on mainstream broadcast. And besides, where else would you hear the term 'earballs'? Another one to add to the ever-growing list of adapted metaphors and catchphrases.
