    [All music in this episode was original music that I, Brandon S. Hire, had a hand in writing and recording. The music bed at the beginning and end of the show was created specifically for this podcast, while the music bed at the beginning and end of the SM/PG comparison is a song called Slipping Away, and was recorded by me in 2004 at Ohio University's Zanesville campus multi-track lab. The song is available on my website brandonshire.net to preview for free or to purchase!]
