    I say something really stupid then double down on it.

    I am fully cognisant of my ... occasional faux pas.

    Shock news: Gav says something stupid!

    In other shock news: the Earth not flat; bears do go to the toilet in the woods; Everest quite big.

    And still no bagpipe theme music. Sigh.

    Sorry.

    While I don't mind the sound of bagpipes (you read it hear first) I know that's a minority view.

    Chris Heaps (who produced our jingle) did offer a variety of banjo pieces. Would that have been more to your tastes?

    Personally I hate bagpipe music (and kilts and whisky, I'm hardly Scottish at all really)

    Is that why your accent sounds Welsh?


    ( I kid. )

    You could have said so much worse - so you get a pass this time around.

    Does anyone else find this hard to listen to? They sound muffled...

    Yeah there was a very real problem with the audio on this one. We picked up some electronic noise and it was in the human vocal range. Removing it degraded what quality there was. We'll fix this next time around. Mea culpa and all that.

    I'm don't want to be discouraging- I really like having a fencing podcast in my podcast app. I like listening to two well- informed people discuss the topics you've chosen so far. The sound quality, though, isn't great. I was struggling with it from the start- not just in this latest episode. But Dan Kellner's voice came through quite clearly (in the interview you did with him) so there's probably an easy fix.

    Though not announced here, Episode 5 is out. Both parts.

    Sean rises in my estimation as he has recognized the greatness of sabre. Gav remains obdurately gormless on that point and is still deplorable therefore. ;)

    Ha ha!
    You can't make me like it! I have to acquire the taste on my own terms!
