  1. Few things..

    1. My LJ username is Sc00ter, not Sc00tz. So the link you put to me goes to an error page. No biggie.

    2. I’m glad to see you’re very happy with the podcast, I could tell by listening to it.

    3. Lists are lame, but I use them anyway.

    4. Kidders podcast was great, thanks for including it. I kinda got board with the Sex Is Fun podcast (don’t hate me) so I otherwise would have missed it.

  2. Oh yes, I love Firefly Talk, good mention here!

  3. Awesome podcast minx!
    It may be just me but, I think your link to the firefly podcast is off.
    More to come later.
