Episode 101: Climate Catastrophe

Welcome to the next one hundred, and our brand new look (thanks Sean)! We needed a bit of a nap after the last episode, but now we've woken up to discover that the world is ending in 12 years. So, we had a bit to talk about. Plus, some exciting messages made our way to the mailbag. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Wild audio variation. Sorry, levels were all over the place this time. I tried.
  • Used a lot of power to render out an audio file during a podcast about cutting carbon emissions.
  • Huge cliffhanger left dangling until next time.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 100: Centenniversary

Hello hello, and thank you all! We've hit triple digits and want to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to everyone that has come along for the ride across the past four-ish years. We'd also like to welcome the new listeners we've picked up along the way, possibly off the back of an unexpectedly successful dog-related Facebook post (who knew?).

This is a pretty jam-packed episode. There's one of Michael's most amazing stories ever, some gift-giving, and a few fun surprises as well. So as we cross the threshold into the next century, know that this episode's mistakes include:

 

  • Varying audio because Garageband decided to just stop recording Michael a couple of times.
  • A bunch of promised 100th content deferred for time.
  • Tonal whiplash across various segments.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.
