  1. Sounds like they city key project people own this episode.

    I think one of the things that draw a few people to adding to the channel/network/whatever is that they don’t have to worry about managing how the shows they create are distributed. They also have you to fix their audio if they have the gain or anything else too low ^^

    A couple of ideas have been going through my mind, and I have a proposal for you and everyone here. I have to work a few things out and make sure I have a certain person’s help, but I plan to reveal this proposal on a show I plan to send to frank in the… not quite immediate, but probably eventual, future.

  2. Shepherd usually seems to be talking to Leigh or the engineer on his shows. In fact, he gets quite pissy, at times, when they aren’t hanging on his every word. Also: Massbackwards (Max Schmid) has LOTS more uncollected Shep shows that get onto his archive site.
