01:29:42 – Because it’s episode 360! Shaddup. Take a wander with your esteemed host as he records three separate episodes, doesn’t have time to produce all of them, and subsequently smashes them into one convenient episode. In Buzzfeed style, you’ll never guess what he talks about! Mostly because the episode doesn’t have a proper description.

01:01:01 – This is a very special episode of the Rubénerd Show, possibly the best one ever. In a cute Philadelphia coffee shop in October 2016, I finally got to sit down with Jim Kloss; mentor, online confidant and dear friend. We set the record straight on Whole Wheat Radio, the pioneering independent online music community; and the NOCHANGE BBS system with its ingenious two factor authentication system and delightful inception. Along with Frank Nora and Israel Brown, Jim was the reason I started this audio magazine in 2005. It was a delight, and an honour to talk with him. I hope you feel the magic I did.
