Sorry folks the holidays once again find me too busy to get a fresh episode of the podcast out this week.  Rest assured there will be a new episode to start the new year which will include my audio book review of Evidence by Jonathan Kellerman and other assorted goodies.  If you are still hankering to hear from me you can catch me in the latest recording of Podshock LIVE where I give my opinion of the Doctor Who episode End of Time Part 1 as Talkshoe once again makes my voice sound like the alien character Sil from classic Who.  The episode can be found by going to the Podshock website and Part 2 of the Talkshoe discussion in the coming days.  Thanks for the patience and the best for the new year.
