Wherein Martians invade the podcast.

(NOTE: This episode was intended to drop early enough to actually listen to on Halloween. Audacity had other ideas, crashing during a save and wiping out several hours of editing despite having been saving regularly. Fortunately, I’d saved the raw recording in a separate location, but recovering still took time.)

(Note 2: Oops, forgot to post this here *g*. Episode 103 coming soon…)
