Listen: Firewall & Iceberg Podcast No. 2a
Wednesday (Feb. 3) was a long morning of attempting to put up the second Firewall & Iceberg (wt) Podcast. Our first recorded version was well over 45 minutes long, covered a wide range of topics and, in addition to technical problems, neither Sepinwall nor I felt happy with it.
We're posting it, because not all podcasts can be perfect and if you want to have a regular podcast, you have to make it regular, even if not every podcast is a total winner. Let's just say we're still working out the kinks, especially since we weren't in the same room, like we were for Firewall & Iceberg Podcast No. 1.
The most important thing I want to note: The discussion of the "Lost" premiere -- complete with spoilers -- runs from the 2:00 mark to the 12:15 mark. If you haven't seen the premiere yet, you probably want to skip that part.
With that all in mind, sit back and try to enjoy Firewall & Iceberg Podcast No. 2a...
