To borrow from Stan the Man, “Hello, True Believers!” I’m taking the week off, podcasting-wise, but I wanted to do something to fill the void this has no doubt left in your life. Let’s start off with a couple of suggestions for old episodes to listen to if you’ve missed any.  Thanks to the ever-lovely Irma Eriksson of “Imy,” there are two great archive pages now; one to search by episode, and the other to search by guest. There’s some great syndicated talent in those episodes: Mark Tatulli of “Lio,” Dave Coverly of “Speed Bump,” Stephan Pastis of “Pearls Before Swine,” and my friend Francesco Marciuliano of “Sally Forth.” In the web world, there’s Howard Tayler of “Schlock Mercenary,” Zach Weiner of “SMBC,” Wes Molebash of “Max Vs. Max,” and Chris Hallbeck of “The Book of Biff.” All of the Tall Tale Features folks are in there, too, so go check ’em out.

Also…I thought it might be vaguely interesting to take you through the process of how I put together one of these bad boys. If you click over on the “How To” button, you’ll get a little more info on how the Magic happens. I’m sure you have an hour or two to kill, or some brain cells you’re not overly fond of, so take a read.
