(Cross-posted from For Immediate Release, Shel’s and my podcast blog. This week’s show has my contribution as recorded input from material I sent Shel last night as I anticipated being away and nowhere near an internet connection. That was last night and things today didn’t actually go according to plan, as this post explains.)
