I had to delete the post but PE had wrote: \"Hi. First of all I would like to say what a great site you have. I have been using it for a month or so now and really seeing the results. I am half an inch longer already and a good bit thicker. Thanx again.\" I think it\'s important to remember that listening to the Accidental Survivors helps enlarge one\'s . . . attributes? Endowments? At least for men. Ladies, do you have a similar story to share?

Hey Joe

I think it has something to do with LAME, of which I am woefully ignorant. I have been very careful with the settings, and playing it from the website seems to work fine for me. Maybe try a different player?

Thanks for trying to listen. We\'ll hunt down those chipmunks and make them pay!

I don\'t know about Phase IV, but the ants in the jungle you\'re describing sounds like an early episode of McGyver

I downloaded this episode and it\\\'s playing at an accelerated pace, so it makes you sound like chipmunks. I checked the play speed and switched it to slow hoping it would right the problem, but instead, you sound like drunk chipmunks. While I\\\'d like to hear the show as it\\\'s intended, drunk chipmunk podcasting is really making me happy.

Your new title of \"The accidental Survivors\" is harder to find on my MP3 player then the traditional \"Accidental Survivors\". The change was in the album name.

Here is an interesting article for news and views A \'Frankenrobot\' with a biological brain

I also have enjoyed the show for quite awhile. Keep up the good work.

One potential source of inspiration for creepy crawlies is the movie Slither. Not only are the slugs creepy enough to make my wife leave the room when the movie is on, Slither also features Nathan Fillion, star of stage and screen.

Slugs, yuck. Slugs that make you a zombie, mega-yuck.

Good episode, guys.
