  1. Maybe it's just me, but I'm having trouble with this particular podcast. You and your guests sound, well, rather like Alvin and the Chipmunks. I first listened through my iPod subscription. When that didn't sound right, I listened directly through the podcast web page you list. In both cases, the speed of playback is too fast. Any suggestions?
