Finally got caught up. Good stuff, although I\'ve noted on this one (near the end) and the hurricane one (at the beginning and throughout) the sound sometimes cuts out for moment. Something wrong with how I\'m listening or an by product of the podcast editing?

Also- do you guys actually have a list of movies geeks can cry at, or is this like the oft-teased by never done \"Sex and D&D\" from the original run of What\'s New??
