      NOA Backstage:

      • Yes, alert listener, Mike the Audio Guy did chime in at one point on this episode.
      • We had not anticipated that Dave Mair would ever change jobs. We fully intend to continue calling the segment News from Support. With a little luck, Randy will stay in his current role for all eternity.
