Leo's accents

A Canadian listener Tall Guy who works at Rogers loves Leo's accents in the intro, especially when Leo gets it wrong.  This is the letter Dick referred to in Episode 58.  Tall Guy listens to DGW through his aging Sansui Quad Synthesiser connected to his Mac G4.  This inspires Dick and Leo to do a "quadpod".
