Behind the mens room? Nice.

I rolled up to Ted Haegers office – you can see him hard at work here:

[Ted used to be a Park Service Ranger – that’s why he’s in marketing.. I think]

The studio itself is pretty good – nice hardware; sound absorbing foam on some of the walls; no noise from the mens room..

And comfy chairs…

This is Ted’s script. More like a cheat sheet – it’s got the hard questions from listeners and readers on it.

The interview itself was good fun – we managed to give Michael our sound engineer some hard times with a bag of Doritos.

You can listen to the recording on Novell Open Audio – it should be posted this week.
