Due to unavoidable circumstances, we were unable to record on Sunday for a Monday release. We did record Monday evening, but technology (the aforementioned harsh, cruel mistress) decided to lose our recording file. Today, we attempted to recreate our conversation (with varying levels of success) in order to provide you with our weekly gab. Unfortunately, this can only be considered a tribute to last night's episode, which was the absolute best podcast episode anyone has ever recorded in the history of podcasting. PROVE THAT IT WASN'T! YOU CAN'T. Anyway, this brings us to yet another episode of Marooners' Talk. Episode 17, titled "Scandal and Success on the Internet (The Tribute)," is...special."
