    It’s good to have you guys back on track and recording again.

  2. Dave Newgass says

    OK….so perhaps Ding Dong isn’t considered a term of endearment in Australia. (I guess if somebody called you that in the locker room, you may be a bit stoked though!)

    Consider this my formal and public retraction so as not to get barred from future exchanges of adult beverages in public places.

    Keep up the good work peeps. Like horoscopes, you can fit most of your episodes into what’s going on in your life to give it more impact and meaning…this episode is no exception. I had some recent criticism and this episode put it in context.

    Thanks again EZ J-Schram.
