  Your hostesses introduce themselves, test equipment, and then take 4 months to feel ready to air this audio show on a regular basis.  Here for new listeners and as proof that we (let's hope!) have really improved over time.
     Also, heartwarming stories of 80s bangs, band instrument choices, and pertinent life lessons. Karen's David Sedaris book signing review. Chris points out that Gregory Maguire's Mirror, Mirror rocks. How Chris got X-men free. The Jesus busters. Listen to two editors argue about the "-al problem" and admit that "like" is here to stay.
     Oh yeah, we're geeks.

I need 2 or 3 beta-testers who listen to other podcasts and are used to subscribing to RSS feeds so that I can email them and say "did a feed alert show up?" 2 or 3 times in the next 10 days.  I have bribes for volunteers....  ;)
