The Can of Corn – Show 11

By Michael Stephens

Welcome to The Can of Corn, hosted by Michael Stephens and Nate Davis! Enough of the monologue already! It’s back to usual with the dual talking heads this week, but we have an added twist – on top of shameless pimping of the show in all posts we talk about, we have decided to take the plunge and join Twitter! We know, aren’t we so 2009 now? So from now on you all can follow the feed thecanofcorn for live updates on publication times for the show, as well as giving you yet another way to get your questions/comments out there so we can cover them on the show. This is a big step for Fantasy Cafe Radio and The Can of Corn, and we hope you will join us in sharing the word about our show and all of its acutriments (injury updates, Cafe Talk, the Hot Corner, etc.) with the masses. In the mean time, you know the drill – grab your glove and head for the outfield – here comes The Can of Corn!
