Do we sound better than usual? Actually I probably sound worse because my throat's been killing me for like a month, but does Janelle sound better? If so, thank the new microphone. We apparently have actual fans out there, one of whom knows the radio biz. They went out and snagged us a shiny mic for podcasting, and we're now officially all richer for it.

So hit that YouTube stream above, or you can download the MP3 if you'd rather take this action on the road.
