    Pat you are a paragon of podcast production. The production quality of the show been excellent especially compared to way back when Jon hosted. The show and its fans always appreciate your hard work.

    When I heard silence in lieu of a silenced gunshot I assumed (for whatever reason) that only the hosts were supposed to hear it and the listeners were supposed to react to the hosts reactions. Perhaps my thinking was a little convoluted but it did not take away from my enjoyment of the show.
