We make our triumphant return for a new season! And we try to teach Jthan how money works, and spiral into non-sequiturs like politics. I (Brent) sound like shit again because I didn’t test my new recording setup. But at least Jthan’s track sounds good. IS THISTHECURSE OF FIRST-EPISODE?

Archive.org’s Internet Wayback Machine sadly doesn’t seem to have an archived version of rainbowsmoothie.com, but apparently there’s still a twitter (with only one hilarious tweet promising more), the domain’s nameservers were apparently changed either to/from Linode’s on May 27, 2011.
