Press 'play' to begin transmission from 3.4 miles above the surface of the Earth...
Following a rigorous 2 week training programme, CosmicStressHead Ben Smylie completes his mission and you get another fine episode of Defenders of the Mirth.
We hope you enjoy this week’s, now out of date, broadcast!
Oh yes, there will be credits.
Oh yes, there will be show notes.
Good mornfternooning, Mirthlings!
Science Officer Ben, here. Several hard-light-life events and a few vectors of nefarious strife have conspired to impede, but by no means halt, our progress in preparing our most recent recording for broadcast. We Defenders take very thorough measures to distill the podcast into the purest mirth money can fail to buy.
To paraphrase Bob, whom I have just this minute appointed Imaginary Spokesman for DOTM,
“Episode 22 IS on our minds. It will be made. We assure you it’s something we have considered and approached. We do not want to rush it. We have nothing but the utmost respect for it and it’s fan base. It will happen!”
Errant apostrophes and slight irrelevance aside, I wholeheartedly echo the spokesman’s statement and its sentiment. I am personally working on the final edit and it shall be hitting your eardrums very, very soon. There is a rigorous training regime, to which Johnny alluded on bookFace, required for me to take up the full weight of this responsibility. Part of this, as I have interpreted it, is to do penance for a late podcast.
I have decided the only way to atone correctly is to embarrass myself on YouTube. As luck would have it, me from five years ago prepared a little something seemingly for this very purpose. Happily this leaves me free to continue the editing.
Here it is: Ben’s Debut in Videography: First Runs
Well, that’s my future career in politics out the window. Ah, I’d have been a tyrant anyway.
I aim to be broadcasting in the very early coming week. If I fail, James’ll have to crack out the old cat o’ nine tails. (He swears it was on the station when he first arrived).
