    The song, “That’s the Problem with Saints” is part of 8in8, which is a fantastic collaboration with Ben Folds, Amanda Palmer, Neil Gaiman, and Damian Kulash. They set out to write and record 8 songs in 8 hours, and managed to create 6 really awesome ones.

    You can hear them all/buy them here =D

    Where’s the link to a mp3 or a podcast? It’s a show designed to be enjoyed on the radio, isn’t a podcast a no brainer?

    It was Adam Savage, not Jamie Hyneman — and Adam was one of the highlights of the night, singing “I Will Survive” as Gollum. John Moe (the host) completely lost it before Adam even started in on the song.

    Great night … the only thing you guys miss from the video stream is the Brass Messengers playing 4-5 songs outside the Fitz after the show.

    why is there no podcast? They have all these twitter links and things, but no podcast?

    Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett were heckling from the balcony? What…no Mike Nelson? (speaking of secret loves…)

    This show looks like great fun!

    Zowie! I’ll need to listen a couple more times before I can ingest properly, but I enjoyed the limerick scansion and the theme. Joan of Arc is not to be messed with.

    Loved the Brass Messengers. Is that a flugelhorn?

    I’ll be tuning in for more.

    Hey Joan, take it out on the English and Welsh and leave the Scots out of this. Under the Auld Alliance Scotland was on the side of France. See http://www.maidofheaven.com/joanofarc_scots.asp
