List-A-Mania is a staple of the Place to Be Podcast. It is a simple concept as Scott & Justin make lists of varying topics within a mix of subjects. Sometimes they present one combined list, while other times they create separate lists to compare. Be sure to share your opinions and join in the discussion on our Facebook page!
