  1. hello guys. loving having you guys to entertain us in solitude…just a heads up, I dont know how you monitor your interlude music but Its almost non existent On your youtube channel. It looks as though It sounds fine in your phones but just nothing in level on YT. your Vocal levels are great, just the music is bad. Not a biggy but I do like the music separating each segment. Keep up the great work lads. Most enjoyable 🙂

  2. ah, i bet this is because the music is in stereo and vocals are in mono, and i forgot to mix down to mono in this export. it’ll be fixed in the next episode!

  3. Kishore’s take on original Doctor Who is correct. I watched it and was a fan as a kid and as an adult I have rewatched many and it is not easy. In my mind it is due to growing up with D&D and early video games in which imagination filled in a lot of gaps. Really if you start with the first episode of any new Doctor in the modern series you basically are getting a soft reboot. I think I enjoyed the Matt Smith run the most. I personally think Blink is a good episode of science fiction but not really representative of a typical Doctor Who episode.

    Regarding the automated contact tracing it would really need to be tied with widespread testing. Someone who works at a grocery store would probably get inundated with possible contacts.
