We here at gorilla vs. bear (okay, it's just me, but 'we' sounds so much more important) will be joining such luminaries as Howard Stern and Mark Cuban as hosts of our very own show on SIRIUS Satellite Radio's Left of Center, and boy are we excited. We will be joining Brooklyn Vegan and ProductShop NYC as part of SIRIUS Blog Radio. Here's the official press release:
