Well, if it wasn't one thing, its another. Episode 30, it turns out, has been eaten by the Warp, consumed by data pirates, and otherwise doesnt exist. Which is too bad, cuz it was a good one. My apologies for not having the episode out in time, but we will strive to make the next one fantastic to make up for it. Having a show out for you every week is important to us, so missing the mark is a stain on our otherwise flawless records (yeah, right). So stay tuned for the next show!
