aww...I'd discovered this earlier and hoped it wouldn't be one of the episodes just because with a pretty limited number of them I was hoping for more new #content. I mean it's obviously undergone some revision, but the basics are the same.

Yes, I can understand that.


This story was one of my favourites from all of Duncan's writing, and is the sole reason why this podcast even exists now! I had learned so much about how to record better, integrate the music well, and generally give a better all round performance that I felt kind of bad that this one wasn't going to get any of that good good treatment.


I don't think I could really bare to listen to the original version any more, purely from a technical standpoint.
