Oh my goodness.  This is the episode that almost killed us.  I don’t know why.

Carolyn came through, though, and it sounds some much better than it did when this started.

So without further ado, Episode 7.

Story begins at 1:59.

  1. Downloading right now.

    Thank you! Thank You! THANK YOU!!!!

    Thanks for all the hard work you two have put into this, especially Carolyn. I’ve been eagerly awaiting the fruits of your labors for so long I’ll need to pay attention to the intro again. I can’t wait to get episode 8 whenever you can finish it too.

    I really love this podcast.

  2. That was even better than I’d hoped! I didn’t hear any kind of unintentional sound “typos.” (Though I thought my computer had locked up or something when I got to the end!) Good job writing and recording such a story. My thanks to both of you for a job well done! I think I’ve used my quota of exclamation points this chapter!!!

  3. You have made my day. Seriously. I had an allergic reaction to some cough medicine last night and couldn’t leave bed for about twelve hours and when I get back to my computer, low and behold… CHAPTER SEVEN! I am happy. :D

  4. So chapter 7 is up… this kinda hurts my “you’re lying to us” theory. You win this round, Defendi.

    Now to listen and enjoy this great story.

  5. Audio came out just fine. All praise be unto the cleanser-of-sound!

  6. Amen to that.

  7. It was mostly good – but chapter 49 was messed up. Audio-wise, at least. plus the waves of force should have come from the heart of light, not the heart of darkness.

    other than that, it was fine.

  8. I came by checking every day, and started to give up hope! :(
    But now, I’m ready to enjoy more of this awesome story

  9. Wow. You leave town for a few days and look what happens. Aside from the welcome home from the wife and kids, this is the best thing about getting back in front of my PC today.
    Now if you will all excuse me, I am going to go re-listen to the whole thing to hit episode 7 right in the perfect context.
    Ding, download’s done. Later.

  10. Very well done filtering out the noise. I’ll admit a few words were obscured due to the noise in chapter 49 I think, but I got the story all the same. Thank you both so much for working so hard on this, despite the pain I’m sure it caused.

  11. Huzzah! (That about sums it up.)

  13. Horray… that will make commuting this morning a breeze. Kudos from germany!

  14. Hi!
    Thank you very much for the fix.

    I loved the surprise at the end. Loved the whole episode (except for the “heart of darkness/heart of light” issue, which I´m sure you´re working out already).

    But, I thought this would be steadier than it is. I´m imagining New year´s and Christmas could get more hectic in USA than it is in Brazil, but I doubt it.

    I hope you can your system in order.

    Good luck!

    Your listener,

    Rafael deMelo.

    You have great skill in writing Mr. Defendi

  15. Bob, you are a cruel, cruel man.

    The hard work paid off, you guys.

    Comment by Raethe — February 2, 2009 @ 11:30 pm

  16. WOW, A whole hour for this episode! Thank you. That was absolutely GREAT.
    Your writing and performance were amazing. If the title of this were not Death by Cliche, I think I might have to kill you for the ending of this one. Saved by the title, you lucky dog you.
    I have to say, you dragged me through that one so fast, I had to immediately replay it to get all the goodness out of it. I was shocked to see that two hours of unloading were done and I still had a smile on my face. I dedicated our shot yesterday to you Mr. Defendi. You Rock! (oops, two exclamation points)
    If you give me an email address, I will send you a picture of the blast and maybe if you squint you can see you image in the blast plume. Some will try and say it is the virgin Mary, but I say it has to be someone better than that. ;D

  17. By the way, I now have to wonder if Howard got the whole “Every villain thinks they are the hero of their own story.” from you, or did you get it from listening to season one of Writing Excuses?

    Comment by WEKM — February 3, 2009 @ 7:45 am

  18. robert (that symbol you all know) robertjdefendi.com.

    Every villain is the hero of his own story is an old saying, I think. I first heard it when I attended Writers of the Future.

    Comment by defendi — February 3, 2009 @ 3:22 pm

  19. Then I will give you credit for passing it on to Howard.
    Don’t tell him though, I wouldn’t want to jeopardize my fan status with him.

    Comment by WEKM — February 4, 2009 @ 6:22 am

  20. That was a dirty dirty trick, Bob J. Defendi! You made me think there were problems with episode 7 after all, or that my iPod was broken! I strongly suspect that you put that part where she skips in there as a sick joke to play on us poor patient listeners just because there were so many problems with getting episode 7 ready. I wonder if the “problems” you had in getting the episode posted were part of some elaborate set-up for the Latiana punchline.
