Funny Little (Wo)Men Behind the Curtain:
- Several listeners have requested the return of “Funny Little Men,” our oft-overlooked meta data section on some of the old episode files. Maybe we’ll start hiding them here.
- Hannes believes his accent to be pure Scottish. Dave Mair begs to differ, but admits that Hannes speaks English better than either Erin or Ted.
- We never actually intended to bleep out the part that we suggested might need a bleepin’. Said Ted: “While your hosts may not always be the utmost professionals, we vow at least that we shall keep our language squeaky clean. But guests must be allowed to be who they are.” Somehow Ted manages to keep his job.
- The interview was from June…can you believe that we took so long? (Ted blames it on Erin.)
