Okay – strangest thing in the world. I was guest 49 on the chat, and all of my comments came up as guest 49 and they even read out one on the episode. Then my stream stopped I had no idea why then I realized it was because they had phoned me. Or at least guest 49 but it wasn’t me it was some guy called Kyle. And I was blocked from listening because I was apparently talking…very weird. Anyways great show as always guys!

The Acting Troupe (and all the other folk who helped make this happen) deserve hearty congratulations for an outstanding job. From the writing to the production to the voice talent, this was a really fun piece of “radio” drama.
