    I’m just leaving a word of encouragement, to say that I’ve been listening to the Smellcast, I still do, and it’s definitely been one of my favorites. The idea of a Hungarian ‘Streetcar’ hadn’t occurred to me before this.

    I’ve never done a podcast, I don’t tweet, so you wouldn’t know me from anything, but I wanted to say something about it. Also as this episode started to play, I flashed back to where I heard an earlier conversation you had with HatM. I was driving through the desert in a rented car, taking in the sights. I’m not from the desert, it was a pleasure trip, and somewhere in my brain it’s associated a stretch of road with your show.

      Hi Butler! Thanks for taking the time to write a comment! I appreciate it! Wouldn’t you have loved to see the play HatM did? A “Hungarianized” Street Car!

      I do the same thing with audio… I associate it with whatever activity I was doing when I listened. Since most of the time I’m at work, I rarely have any particular recall. Occasionally however, I’m doing something unusual or rare when I’m listening to a podcast — and then I’ll always do that association thing you describe!


Lay it on me bay-bee...
