Episode 57: Q & A and Random Bits Show

Posted 5 October 2015 by

Heeeeere’s your seven word summary: We asked, you responded and we answer.

For the first time in the five years that we have been doing this show we sat down with a couple of glasses of wine to deviate from our normal format and answer some of your questions. We had asked for them and you delivered! From questions about specific episodes to hypothetical situations and research methods to some semi-personal questions…we answered them all. We even revealed some of the names on our extraordinarily long list of future subjects and did a really bad job of keeping our next subject secret. (In vino veritas and all)

We thought that this cocktail party chatter was a perfect way to give our new audio recording system the proper welcome that it deserves. Isn’t it pretty?

ooooh!

Ooooh!

Ahhhhh!

Ahhhhh! (Cool lamp in both of these shots)

Here are some random things that will only make sense after you listen to the episode:

* Full disclosure: The brilliant mind behind wordsfrom.us is a dear friend of ours who we met BECAUSE of this podcast. JD has been a techie hero to us on numerous occasions including getting this particular episode to your ears. We recommend his site because it’s cool, though, not as a paid or bartered endorsement.
