So sorry for the late delivery of Episode 26, everybody. I normally queue these things up the weekend before release, because I get super busy during the week and don’t have time to attend to it properly. For this episode, I made a mistake and set the date one week in advance by accident. Aaaand… didn’t notice it until now.
Also, apparently my website crashed? Weird. Anyway. All is well now, and the episode is in your podcatcher.
To make up for it, here is a picture of the cat.
