You saved the best for last. The conversation about father-in-law titles was fascinating.

If folks haven't tried this podcast yet, they really should. It's non-stop interesting.

@Toronto Mike - I was trying to vaguely refer to a comment you made about people not listening to it.

@Lyle - thanks. As soon as we finished, I said to Mike that convo was the climax of the episode. Thanks for the listen.

@Elvis: You're too quiet at times, example @7:06 you kind fade out.

Get on that mic! Or get on that Mike. Whatever.

Audio Yoda tells me I've got elvis and I at the same volume but we're both too quiet relative to the music.

I'll get it right for the next episode of Toronto Mike'd. It's only taken me five months to figure it all out.

@Mike: Next step is to go back and re-record all 38+ episodes, then release them as Special Editions.

I lurk a lot and comment never but I'm going to give a little credit where credit is due.

This is a very interesting and funny podcast. It's well structured so it doesn't drag and when it ends you're still hungry for more.

That's all. Back to lurking for me.

Still sucks...but getting better.

I too liked the Father-in-law conversation.

I honestly can't imagine calling anyone Mr. or Mrs. so-and-so. even the high-up execs where I work I call by their first names. In fact the only ones I call Mr. or Mrs. anymore are my old teachers when I run into them. It's funny how one reverts when confronted with stuff from their childhood.

My 6 year-old son calls all my friends by their first names...although some are referred to as uncle or aunt even though they're not related. This comes from my Portuguese background.

I'm not sure how I feel about society getting away from the formalities of salutations. On one hand I feel like it may be contributing to the growing lack of respect that humans seem to have for one another...on the other hand, I personally don't feel like giving anyone that sort of power over me.

@Al

Now that I've figured out my sound levelling I'm betting episode 3 is the Least Sucky Episode, Ever.

Oh... and telling me I have to call you Mr and Mrs essentially guarantees I'll never call you at all. I'll look in your direction and start talking.

@Al, As a child I thought the Estonian words for aunt & uncle meant woman & man for similar reasons.

Great episode guys. You should have Muzzin on with you and Elvis as I thought Elvis was going to send the podcast off the rails when he started on the Gay Boy scout topic, one I think Muzzin might have an opinion on.
I found the levels good, but over all volume seemed low. I had to crank my Ipod and my cars aux input to almost max, which I don't need to on your Toronto Miked.
As for the Mr. Mrs. salutations: Some cultures it is just how it's done. We North Americans tend to pass these over as time goes on.
My inlaws I always called Mr. and Mrs. B as my 87 year old mother inlaw is old school British, so it was always done. It also helped that I started going around when i was 18, 35 years ago LOL. You better find a compromise, or you could have a cold bed and shoulder possibly from your lovely bride to be.
