Notes and commentary after the jump.

I am making this the most human podcast. I’ve farted, eaten, sobbed (off camera) and since starting this my life has started to get better. I have an interview for a real job tomorrow that would make me move so that is a bit horrifying. This podcast is making my life turn around – or it is all coincidence.

Also sorry for those of you who did like Undergrowth. It was problematic to kill her off but it is part of the ongoing storyline and I have alot planned.

Also the MIDI of Londonderry Air (Oh Danny Boy) came from here. I messed around with that in Garage Band and things fell apart. I also made the wise decision of cutting out myself singing the song and then singing about eating food (it was leftover lasagna and pita chips with melted cheese if you were wondering) and I’d lost track of time so I hadn’t eaten at 3:00pm. This is the most real podcast out there – beyond all of the fake stuff.

I’ll see you next Friday with episode 5 of Radio Hope and the Reader!

Alternative episode title was Space Lunch.
