  1. I wish there had been more time to return to this issue. As the conversation eventually led to, both are heroes, but it's hard to compare what each had to go through (for Jason, still going to go through). But the original comparison Matt made in his tweet was about rednecks mad with Robinson and homophobes mad with Collins. And this is a totally fair comparison—the homophobic backlash to Collins IS going to look just as disgusting as the racist backlash to Robinson in 20 years. Brett missed the actual crux of the analogy in the first place. Not that he needed more things to get called out on, but his reasoning for engaging with Matt in the first place was flawed. Also, just my two cents, but I don't think Matt should worry at all about having the other improvisers on during Case Closed. Usually, they lighten the mood a bit (because they're less invested and more likely to joke), throw in a few comments, or even clarify the caller's points. And if it does start to seem like a pile-on, he can always tell them to back off.

    Posted this rant video before, but it didn't get picked up for the show. But with the call for more rant style ones, here it is again.

    Ok I know I *just* posted one. But this is unreally and unintentionally hilarious (this was made totally seriously): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRYMpAQGT54&feature=share

    I know that various creationist non-sense has been covered on the show before, but I just love this video so much. And it would be so ripe for a scene or two: Peanut Butter, The Atheist's Nightmare!

    Podcast Q - logo not appearing in iTunes?

    Dealing with podcast artwork is a bit of tricky business. To ensure the most wide array of listeners get your artwork, you need to do 2 things. 1) Embed the actual image in the mp3/m4a file. I do this through iTunes when inputting the metadata. Whatever method you might use to add album artwork to an mp3 file will work fine. 2) Specify the artwork URL in your xml file. If you're using a hosting service like Libsyn or something like Feedburner (as Dan says above) then you can specify the location. But to make sure it gets it right, I'd suggest learning how to write xml on your own (it's pretty straightforward). You want to make sure this line is pointing to your artwork: <itunes:image href="http://computer.com/fleethescene/FTS_Logo.png" /> When pulling from iTunes on a desktop/laptop (i.e., not a mobile device) it will not auto embed the artwork you specify, only what is in the mp3 file. When pulling from iTunes on a phone or directly from the RSS, it will pull the artwork from the URL you put in the xml. It's dumb.

    Episode 30 — Toast Points

    I really enjoy that both on here and the Maximum Fun messages, people will sign up for an account and on their very first post write a vitriolic diatribe about how they are deeply upset about something they heard on a free audio podcast.

    Season 2 Cancelled

    Not too surprised. The amount of work going into it + people's vitriolic reactions - low listenership = hard sell to try again.

    Recommendations for a condenser mic?

    I use a Marshall MXL USB.007 and really really like it. I use it for both vocal recording during podcasting and recording acoustic guitar. Very versatile, great sound quality, and well priced. http://www.bhphotovi...Microphone.html Although not totally needed with this mic, depending on your speech patterns, getting a cheap pop filter won't hurt. I tend to drag on "S"s but others I've used the mic with have hard "P"s and having the pop filter was useful. This one works nicely and is cheap: http://www.amazon.co...s00_i00_details I've also heard good things about the Blue Yeti: http://www.amazon.co..._pr_product_top
