Where Is Episode 69, You Ask?

January 28th, 2011 by Kyle

In case you’ve been wondering: yes, we did record an Episode 69, and yes, it will be posted reasonably shortly. And yes, we know that will mean that Episode 69 will come after Episodes 70 and 71. It’s a wibbly-wobbley, timey-wimey thing, OK?

Just be patient.
