Fair warning folks: There were a few gremlins in the works when this episode was laid down. Nothing about this episode feels inaudible to me, but there is a recurring hiccup with my mic where my voice flares up now and then for the briefest of moments (I’m blaming a loose/bad cable). Then, as if to really make me feel dumb, the cable gives out altogether and what you hear comes from my laptop’s on-board mic.

Oddly enough, the on-board mic sounds pretty good! But since said mic is pretty close to the laptop’s speakers, you can hear a weird echo with my guest’s audio.

Again, not inaudible, but not exactly what I’d call “up to standards”. I’ll have everything fixed by next time, I swear.

As for this episode, it was a fun discussion…helped in large part, I’m sure, by the fact that this time around we aren’t discussing missing spouses, sociopathic journalists, or the astrophysics involved with spacetime. Sometimes, you just need to hit record and talk about a cartoon!


Here’s what’s in store in episode one-hundred-and-twenty-four…
