  1. Somebody has to shoot Mark from Memphis!

  2. Hey, guys. Just wanted to say I’m sorry if I misinterpreted what you said about Christian symbolism in Narnia – (though it seems I wasn’t the only one).

    And you’re absolutely right to scratch your heads at people who say there’s “Deeper Meaning” to LotR, because there ISN’T ANY. Tolkein (IIRC) HATED allegory with a flaming purple passion. So you’re right, no Christian symbolism in Tolkein.

    And last… man, I sounded like a complete ROBOT in that message. Gah!

  3. Hi guys. Pretty kewl to hear my voicemail made the show. I have a background in broadcasting and voice work and would love to record a segment or pop in occasionally. I think you guys mentioned a few eps back that you wanted to get some new segue/bumper segments and I’d be glad to help out. “…just glad to be doin’ good works.”

    Glad you guys are back and I’m looking forward hearing more!

  4. I want to second that idea of “Mark from Memphis” being shot… I’d even be willing to donate funds….er…to huricane relief…..yeah, that’s the ticket. ;)
