Welcome to another week's Firewall & Iceberg podcast, a podcast characterized as much by its technical difficulties as its content.

Last week, if you'll recall, Sepinwall and I didn't like our first podcast and we recorded a second one completely from scratch.

That didn't feel necessary this time around, but we had to pause twice due to Skype issues and I sound as if I'm in a lead-lined coffin. Alan sounds great, though! So there's that. It's possible we're actually backsliding, technically, but Sepinwall's researching new techniques as I type.

We talked a bit longer this week and covered a wide variety of topics. If you're looking to catch some things and avoid others, here's a brief breakdown:

The "Chuck"-pocalypse: 1:00 - 9:30
"Lost": 10:20 - 17:10
"American Idol": 17:15 - 20:10
"Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains": 22:00 - 26:30
"How to Make It in America": 26:30 - 30:40
"Friday Night Lights": 31:30 - End

We talk about a few other things in there as well, but that's the basic outline.

And now, enjoy Firewall & Iceberg Podcast No. 3:

Firewall & Iceberg - Podcast 3

A long-time member of the TCA Board and a longer-time blogger of "American Idol," Dan Fienberg writes about TV, except for when he writes about movies or sometimes writes about the Red Sox. But never music. He would sound stupid talking about music.
