  1. also in tdp 93 too.. fixed the sample speed in this one.

  2. Ah, I thought it sounded a bit odd in 92! It can’t have been too far off, though. Thanks for playing our promo (twice, no less!) Staggering Stories Podcast 48 finally sees us play yours again!

    I really must listen to the new (BBC Radio 7?) Paul McGann Big Finish plays – I’ve never heard any of them… Very bad of me. You make them sound great and intrigue me about Sheridan Smith’s companion.
