Thoughts from your host…


Are you the sort of listener who cares more about the tone of a speaker’s voice than what it is they are speaking about, then lordy do I ever have a great episode for you!

You see this week brought upon another episode recorded on a Sunday morning. Turns out this particular Sunday morning followed a particularly boisterous Saturday night for my guest. So her dulcet tones – which I certainly believe sound better than my own on any given day – have an extra bit of smokiness to them that makes for a pretty darned good audio.

I’d love to tell you that we were putting those dulcet tones towards a discussion of your favorite film, but we’re talking about JUPITER ASCENDING…so call it a hunch.

Regardless of the quality of the film (one we still find good things to say about), I’m one who believes that some people could just read the phone book and turn in a good episode.


Thanks for tuning into episode one-hundred-thirty-one.
