Value This - The weekly Radio Appraisal show with Brian Kathenes and Leon Castner

Brian and Leon, will blow your mind with their witty and thorough knowledge of everything that you can put a price tag on. Listen every week on your local public radio station.

Synopsis: Our friend and special guest this week is Andrew Milne from Scotland.  We spend almost the entire show listening to his wit and wisdom-much greater than either Brian or Leon’s-even if it’s more difficult to understand his accent.  (Sometimes Brian and Leon’s northern New Jersey accent is also hard to understand.)
