The process of birthing a podcast is a tenuous one, fraught with peril and scorn.

Week on week, ones hew closer to to the precipice of suck, without hopefully going over. Listening, as you are, from the future, you have the perspective given by time and tardiness. Some shards of mirth seem more polished and some less by the ravages of time. And the temptation is to set them against each other, as if in an ideological battle. We hope, as should you, that the premier premises need neither polish nor victory to justify their exemplitude

All of which is essentially to say that it’s not a very perfect podcast this week. But we do talk about: Prison, Possible Bruising, Non-Raping Time, Kraken, Greek Mythology, Honeymooners, Themesong, Coordination, WPSS, Squeaky Chairs, Horse Birth, The Jordan Berkowitz Hour, Mics, Christian Bale, Monica Lewinsky Jokes, J.D. Salinger, Bill Cosby, Female Prisoners, Catcher in the Rye, Ayn Randish, Holden Caulfield, Zelda Rubenstein, The Legenda of Zelda, Steven Segal, Zelda Fitzgerald, Poltergeist, Poltergeist 2, Poltergeist 3, Poltergeist 4, Jean Simmons, KISS, Gene Simmons, John Bell, Taco Bell, Southland Tales, Taipan, Shogun, Gaijin, Pliny the Elder, Theory of Gravity, Reading Porn, The Chinese, Fish Heads, Tennis, and so much more.

Also, I don’t know what’s going on with the numbering.
