Next week, Mr. 12:36 will settle this disagreement once and for all.

I'm glad u mentioned Bob's bathroom break. I didn't 'get' the Jackie Robinson clip at the time.

Also, E misspoke when he said he'd never heard of your skeletal-heart issue. You described it in a previous E episode (Hence my love of the line 'It's skeletal, man')

Re: humouring guests. The most glaring time you didn't humour was when Marty joked that Eric Wedge's nickname if he managed the Jays would be 'Wedgie'. You gave him nothing!

Anyways, loved the episode. All the best to you and yours!

@Beatts - yes, I listened to three and Gino Reda on the way home. Still more queued up as well.

The version in iTunes is only 1:18 and cuts off in mid-sentence.

Yes, I'm hearing of some funky behaviour with the ep cutting out at 1:18.

The MP3 is definitely 1:35... in my iTunes, it's playing all 1:35.

I will troubleshoot and see why some people lose it at 1:18.

I think I've figured it out.

I originally published the XML file with the wrong length in bytes. I quickly corrected this (this episode is 136,878,413 bytes) but it seems some readers won't update this and think the episode is 1:17:50. Annoying.

I assure everything that the episode is 1:35:03 so make sure you're method of listening says there's 1:35:03 of audio. If not, play it off the site or maybe Outcast:

@Elvis lol yeah just busting balls, I caught later in the episode you mentioning you had listened to more than you let on.

Still a great podcast. Good conversation.

I listened the final 17 minutes from the link at the top.

Well worth hearing.

Loving it! Listening now.

I love Elvis - mostly because he's out of effs to give, which appeals to me.

Another great instalment!

Thanks everyone! Mike and I were on a roll today.

P.S. People with potty mouths are smarter than the average slug. And, for this listeners who don't like the way Elvis weaves in the curses? Fuck'em.

Fun listen - works as a kind of year-end retrospective going through some of the more recent episodes and guests (that Elvis hasn't yet listened to :) ).
