    At long last you’ve giving up even claiming to be a family or “clean” podcast and the last shreds of doubt were torn away in your outtakes section. You might just call yourselves the Smutcast for all that. I mean, really! Although nothing in there would necessarily get you an “explicit” tag in iTunes, it still deserves a warning for the little ones.

    That said, although you folks do make me cringe at times (I, unlike Wyn, don’t want to think of you that way) I do truly enjoy the podcast. Could you take it down a notch, though?

  2. Don’t worry, I’m sure most of that was down to the excitement of all five us us being together for the first time in quite a while. I suspect things will calm down a little next time. You are right though, we do tend to skirt the line a bit, sometimes going a bit beyond…
