Pick of the Week Podcast
AUDIO NOTE: We recorded this episode live on USTREAM and so we used a slightly different audio set up than normal. As a result, there were some problems with Josh's audio. We fixed the most glaring issues with Josh's mic after the first five minutes or so, but up until that point the audio quality is not what you would normally expect from our show. There are also a few random audio glitches here and there throughout the show (as a result of the afroementioned problems with Josh's mic) that we couldn't do anyting about. We apologize.
