This podcast was recorded last Sunday but due to some technical and logistical issues, I haven’t been able to post the podcast until today. I talk briefly at the beginning about the posting schedule for the website but I’ve modified it and the current schedule can be found in a posting update I published on the site on Monday evening. The reason why I published this podcast instead of junking it due to it being delayed for so long is that I really enjoyed listening to it. I listened to the thing in its entirety three times during post-production (which tells you about all the problems I had with my audio-editing software). It’s probably one of the best podcasts that I’ve ever published on the site.

There are big plans for E3. Check out Madness Brewing Live on Wednesday at 10PM for more details (on WRGTradio.com).
