*NOTE* Folks who downloaded this episode immediately upon publication may have heard a few naughty words. For the first time in 284 episodes, I botched an edit job. As soon as someone made me aware of my error (a few hours after publication) I pulled the file down immediately, re-edited, and posted the new one. So if you were one of the unlucky (or lucky, depending on your viewpoint) people who heard me curse, my apologies.
