Episode 75: The Missing Episode

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, July 9 2008 (9:30 PM - 11:00 PM) at Joe’s Prime Time Pub. Brownstown MI
    “Also know as the “Bzz, bzz-bzz-bzz, bzz, bzz” Episode.  Schmoe, Greg, Scott, Mickey, DJ, and Mike engage in another fourcast, with disastrous results.

    Mike is back in Houston, and our return to using a speakerphone was our worst attempt ever.  Maybe it’s because it’s the first time we’ve tried this at Joe’s Prime Time, maybe it’s because I don’t know what I’m doing, maybe I should set everything up before I start drinking; but, not only did we get GSM noise again, we got continual and constant GSM noise!
    I tried playing around with the recording but there’s no way to salvage it.  I tried turning it mono (using the side with slightly less buzz), I tried re-equalizing it, I tried various filters, but nothing worked well enough.  The more I try to phase out the GSM noise the more I lose in overall audio quality; and the less tweaking I do the more annoyingly unlistenable it stays.
    So here’s a compromise.
    Instead of the usual MP3 in our podcast feed, I’ve typed up a transcript of the recording.  Download the PDF here or read it below, and this way we can share what we recorded without your having to suffer through listening to it.  Pretend it’s just like one of our other shows.  Or get some friends together and act out all the parts.  (Make sure to use some kind of effect for Mike, such as talking into a coffee can.)

    For the heck of it, we turned the transcript into an ebook for Kindle, too.  You can buy it from Amazon’s Kindle Store (for a 99ยข fee, mind you) or you add it manually by downloading it here (for free).  We have a free ePub version as well, for iPads and Nooks.
    Update: added August 29, here’s an outtake, videotaped after the show, where Greg gives his review of the Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker:
