    08:31 -
    12:24 - a reference to how Greg is incapable of downloading any kind of audio file on his work laptop
    14:28 - the boys mock me because I had to redo this announcement.
    18:43 - that would be Episode 70
    20:41 - as you probably already know, it's the beach ball that's purple
    23:57 - a reference to the giant cluster that ends Episode 84
    26:25 - I wish now that I'd said "schooled" instead of "scolded"
    29:54 - in our area, Roger Clyne and Peacemakers are playing Chicago on Friday, May 15; Ann Arbor on Saturday, May 16; and Cleveland on Sunday, May 17.
    33:35 - see Clement Freud tell the joke himself, at Boing  (And I guess that should be Boing Boing "readers" rather than "listeners".)

    04:57 - featuring the talents of Jim Auquier (The Jimmy Show) and Rob Norum of, together. Acoustic Rewind.
    05:30 - we had to whip up a final verse on the spot.  I think Scott offered the “Shadows tall” line, about which I was skeptical.  I doubted the tilt of the Earth was substantial enough to change shadows in Autumn and the rhyme smacked of desperation.  The following morning Scott “took me to school”, offering the following information in an e-mail.

Summer sunlight is more direct.  More energy per unit area is received by sun.  Thin[k] of the longer shadows cast in winter.  Also think of the beam of a flashlight illuminating a spot on a table:  Direct illumination provides maximum light per unit area.  Tilting the flashlight means that the beam is spread over more area but its is giving of the same energy per unit time.  Thus the energy per unit time per area is smaller in the tilted case, and similarly as applies to the sun in the winter.
