So I screwed up.

In the recording of this episode, I changed my usual routine, and when I made the change, I neglected to check how that change was affecting my usual set-up. Turns out, that change was having a HUGE effect on my usual set-up, and the original audio for this episode was completely useless. I feel bad, because my tight schedule only allowed one chance to record with the original guest who was dropping by for this episode, and now that discussion is lost. Apologies to that guest – you know who you are.

By now, you might be asking yourself “Why even cop to a mistake at all? Why not just plow forward and pretend that you meant to do that?” Perhaps it’s because I believe in acknowledging the contributions of my guests and what they bring to the show. I feel as though I need to tip my cap to the time they give unto me, and that they do so graciously. So to waste it, I feel terrible, and feel like I need to admit I’ve done so openly.

Anyway, the end result turned into something really good, something very different from the usual format of the show. So as I stretch my legs post-TIFF, and get ready to dig into a very exciting autumn at the multiplex, please do enjoy this latest episode. It’s deeply spoiler-ific, it’s very different from my usual show structure, and it’s a really good listen!
