Episode 60: Testing, testing, anybody there?

 

We’re moving off of Blip so I’m testing out new ways to get our feed onto iTunes.  So far we’re still waiting on the “test” (namely this show) to upload so I will keep you guys informed!

Other news: it’s winter in Canada, and it’s a cold one.  This means that the trip to Sue’s place keeps getting put off because, well, it’s too cold to be standing on a street corner waiting for buses.  So episode recordings are likely to be a little off for the next month or 2.
