2012 was a year to remember in Mayberry and since it’s the beginning of a new year I thought it was a good time to review the top episodes of the year.   This listing is made up of the episodes released during 2012 (not all-time).

I think the review may be helpful to podcast listeners who have missed episodes and for new listeners who may want to go back and check out some of the most listened to episodes.

I did some figuring about the 217 episodes, thus far, of Two Chairs No Waiting. Over the last 4 plus years, I have created just over 63 and a half hours of podcast listening. That averages out to 17 and a half minutes per episode.  So, knowing which episodes fellow listeners have listened to most may help you find the high points you may enjoy going back and giving a listen.

Two Chairs No Waiting

It’s just after Christmas and many folks out there have gotten new computers, iPods, iPads, or other things that allow them to join us here in Mayberry and Two Chairs No Waiting.  As such, I thought it might be a good time to go over 2010’s top downloaded/listened to episodes of the podcast.

Hopefully this list will help new listeners find episodes they might want to go back and give a listen and remind those that have been listening for a while of some of the fun we’ve had over the last year.

Enjoy the show and welcome to Mayberry if you’re just finding the show.
