In this episode, our discussion is lost to the endless and unforgiving void as some sort of interference borks the first 40 minutes of the show. We also talk about the next steps in developing Wikisleuth, a game based on the Wikipedia mechanic we spitballed in the last episode. As a very special treat, we've included a tremendous amount of background noise from the major expressway no more than 25 feet from our microphones.
Intro gag: Comin' to ya' live from my parents' basement, I'm Johannes Stauffer and with me as always is a pile of Cheeto dust the size and shape of a grown man, and this is the Mildly Alarming Podcast. Episode 462: Strom Thurmond: The Musical.
We haven't really settled on whether we want this to be an hour-long podcast or not, so chime in on twitter, by email, or in the comments to let is know what you prefer: hour-long episodes where we discuss multiple topics, or single-topic episodes that last 15-20 minutes.
Wikisleuth Rules (1st Draft) - This version of the rules was compiled from the original email and the content of the episode after the fact, so it will differ slightly from what we discuss. We have every confidence in the intelligence of our listeners and trust that they will apply their critical problem solving skills to overcome any confusion that may arise as a result. Or just ask a question in the comments; that works too.
