[48 goes here]

Episode 48 will go here, when I get it pared down to less than an hour. Lots of raw audio to go through!

Toronto's Molar Radio #47: Xenophobes.

Thanks to Marie-Claire for the molar bank AND crisscross bandage idea.Sometimes, life gets in the way, but we are still around. This is an episode we recorded before the Vivienne interview of #46. We were also hoping to record a Christmas card for you, with our pal Zanta, but we had some, er, scheduling conflicts — he’s not an easy guy to get ahold of! Look for that in the new year. Happy holidays all the same!

The following still applies:

* The Secret Zanta Mix Tape/CD Exchange will be sorted out in January; let us know if you’re interested.

* Got a relationship question? Ask Beer’d! Our chum Jordan would love to answer your pressing dating queries, so fire us an audio file (or e-mail for help). Yes, I can disguise your voice.

As always, show your true colours below (or out loud at 309-216-6458), answer the Zantastic poll on the right, vote at the Alley as if it mattered, or see our contact page for e-mail/Skype/PO Box info.

Toronto's Molar Radio #45: Molar, She Podcasted.

C'mon, you know the tune.You wouldn’t know it from our Web site updates, but we’re more or less back to a regular recording schedule. There are two more episodes recorded, and being that I actually have some time for editing these days, they should be up this week. They’ll be hefty shows like this one, but look at all those topical links! If you don’t visit every single one, I’ll bite you. Seriously. At least try the kooky A.L.I.E.E.E.N Flash game.

A few things:

* I think e-mail is working again.

* We’re going to do another Secret Zanta Mix Tape/CD Exchange, so let us know if you’re interested.

* I hope to have that episode up before the weekend, but why not check out the TTC Knit-A-Long Web site to prep you for our interview with the organizer?

* Got a relationship question? Ask Beer’d! Our chum Jordan would love to answer your pressing dating queries, so fire us an audio file (or e-mail for help). Yes, I can disguise your voice.

As always, post your Fletcheresque comments below (or out loud at 309-216-6458), answer the Zantastic poll on the right, vote at the Alley as if it mattered, or see our contact page for e-mail/Skype/PO Box info.

Toronto's Molar Radio #44: Let the healing begin.

Do not be afraid.Remember that time we had Sunjye over? The resultant episode stretched over an hour, with minimal edits. Lengthy, but all very interesting, I thought.

That same night, we recorded the audio of a “healing ceremony” Sunjye performed, consisting of a reading from E. J. Gold‘s American Book of the Dead. (The original episode post actually shows a picture of our setup that night, too. Fire up some myrrh, and it’s almost like you’re there.)

I wasn’t quite sure how to go about editing that piece (although the intention was to offer it as a supplemental download to accompany that episode), so it was never released. Since Erin hadn’t heard it since the night it was recorded (last December!), I thought it might be cool to record an intro, listen to the ceremony, and then capture our reactions. So here y’go! Let us know what you think.
