Holiday horribleness

Hello intrepid listeners,

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but there will be no show this week. Due to crazy audio problems, the show we recorded is full of terrible audio badness. Somehow we got a lot of ghosting (repeating ourselves on a 1-3 second delay) that is so loud that I have no way of mixing it out with the tools that I have.

Add to the fact that Ben and I are running crazy schedules due to the holidays and getting things shored up to visit family, and I don't think we have time to redo the show until we are into the new year.

I know you guys are disappointed, and believe me, I am crazy upset to let you all down, but it's better then trying to make you sit through what is truly a bad recording and is irritating and distracting away from the talks about rainbow jellyfish and how Ben can't play reindeer games! (Metzen cornered the market!)

We sincerely wish you have the best holidays ever, no matter what they be and that you will still tune in for next year's new episodes! We have some major things planned for the 2014, and I give you my solemn vow that as soon as the funds are there, I will upgrade my hardware and software setup to ensure problems like this are a thing of the past!

Thank you all, your tuning in means more to us then we can ever express. May the new year bring you many joys, many pets, and tons of amazing loots!
