Notes and commentary after the jump.

So I think I gave most of the notes at the end of the podcast to hit the 20 minute mark. There is some interesting stuff brewing though so look forward to that.

And also I’ve never been high or drunk (on booze – sugar drunk I have been). Honestly though I tried my best to sound out of it but acting was never really my best skill – I do enjoy public speaking though but sincere doubts about my voice kept me from doing much. Well those doubts can suck it because I’m in the podcast world now and people like the work that I do despite my stupid voice. Hahahaha, take that doubts.

Though if I could have any other voice I’d want a Matt Berry style voice so everything I’d say would sound like a radio dramarrrrrr.

Let’s cut to a bit of Snuffbox theme song.

That is a really catchy song.

At my job I’ve been listening to British classics radio and Matt Berry and Pete Serfancowicz seem to voice most of the commercials and their accents that they use to stereotype are interesting because normally we just think of the Cockney or standard British one but there is a lot of variety. I don’t even know what I’m talking about. I may be high on life. Just like Dracula.
