What Do You Want To Hear In The Next Pod?

Posted: February 10, 2015, 10:43:12

First: Let me apologize that we haven’t delivered the podcast about Maximum Overdrive. I have had huge problems with my Internet provider that if I were to about would have to BiP out a lot of the words if you know what I mean.

Second: The Maximum Overdrive pod will have to wait due to scheduling problems but we’ll get to it eventually.

Third: As a comfort (and because we are a bit low in ideas) Lou and I have decided that you will get to decide what we’re going to talk about in the next pod. We will record on Sunday 22nd so it can’t be a thick book though but otherwise we are open to suggestions. Post them here on Lilja’s Library, on facebook or twitter and we’ll do the one or once that gets the most suggestions.
