  1. Yikes, I totally missed that while I was editing. So sorry everyone. :(

    I had a friend over and her kid used the bathroom, he didn’t realize I was recording. I didn’t think the mic would pick that up but it’s pretty bad.

    Sorry to Hadji too – that was definitely NOT him. Totally my bad on this one.

  2. I’m going to post an edited version ASAP so as not to subject you all to this. Sorry again. :| I feel terrible about it.

  3. I was laughing my ass off the whole time and paying more attention to the background than what you guys were actually talking about. Eventually, I had to rewind the whole MP3 just so I can listen to your conversation.

    This had to be the most entertaining episode yet. :) Don’t feel bad unless Hadji took offense to it. I’m sure he found it just as funny.

  4. I feel bad for over-reacting. :(

    It was definitely hilarious, not a big deal at all! I was just so shocked. In hindsight I wish I just emailed you the question instead of blowing up your spot on the comments section.

    Sorry :)
