It’s creepy at the 2:25:45 mark when we go deathly silent and all you hear is an ambulance. I was there and listening to this was still worried that we’d been in a terrible accident.

Fixed it, but perhaps it’s a case of closing the barn door after the horse has left.

I’m just glad we’re both okay.

I’m just trying to picture what a freak podcasting accident would look like. Maybe you slipped on the steps, or had something thrown at you by a trained monkey…

When I was growing up, my best friend’s mother was a tall, stout opera singer with a hawkish nose. I’ve always had a soft spot for Castafiore.

I’d love to hear you guys do an episode on the Jo, Zette and Jocko books, too, if you’ve got it in you to add another episode.

This one so annoyed me when I read it as a kid, where’s the globe trotting adventure? Now I really appreciate it. Sounds like Herge was moving into autobiographical comics!You seem to have a lot of fun with this one! 🙂

I still think someone should adapt it into a live play.
