Recently, several of the ABS research team were granted the esteemed honor of hostin the Raw Dog Comedy Hour on Sirius XM. It was an instructive evening, to say the least. We were engaged by several desperate callers, including a member of the popular band, SugarCult. (Or was it Superchunk? It’s so hard to keep those rock outfits straight!)
