good news, everyone! the audio quality of episode two is markedly better than in episode one! i’m (josh) learning great stuff about audio editing! no weird gaps! background noise removed! bad news, everyone! we were both tired and unprepared when recording this episode, so … it’s maybe boring? some of last week’s topics get a rehash. but hey, that’s life, and we have a through-line now, i suppose.
further to the topic of guar gum in fracking, i remember now why that was such a big deal that it caused a shortage. guar gum is also a main stabilizing ingredient in gluten free baking, and the significant rise in fracking operations and the significant rise in gluten free diets were coincident if i remember rightly. —jahnna
A note from Josh: The pilot episode of the podcast is pilot-y, and subsequent episodes will be more polished. Not sure if that’s a note on this episode or on future ones, but still.
(a subsequent note from jahnna: and future episodes will probably be a smidge shorter)
a note from Wren: future episodes should not delay dog’s supper or there will be an increase in borking
