Dear friends: the opportunity to use the word PENULTIMATE — go ahead, go look it up, I’ll wait here — comes far too rarely for my tastes. That’s why I’m pleased to provide you now with this, the PENULTIMATE CHAPTER of this increasingly epic podcast:
HELP! A BEAR IS EATING ME!
And dude, it is *so* PENULTIMATE! I mean, seriously! Not only is it PENULTIMATE, it’s also PEN-LONG-IMATE! That’s right, it’s the second longest chapter in the series. Long with goodness! It’s got action, it’s got suspense, and it’s got lots and lots of bears! It’s the kind of chapter that makes you turn skyward and exclaim “Thank you, Jesus, for chapters!”
Here is the format for the pods lacking eyes.
And here is the feature you know you miss:
QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS!
Q: Are you famous yet?
A: Totally! And yet, as with wealth and thinness, I feel could be famouser. If there’s anybody you haven’t pimped this podcast to, now would be a great time, as would any time in the past. The future, I suppose is okay too, but not as good as now.
Q: How’s the book coming?
A: Awesomely! We have master smartologist Brady Clark finishing up a fantastic book cover, we are e-proofing the i-galleys, and we are waiting for our writer friends to get back to us about blurbs! Once that’s all finished, you just push this button, and books rain from the sky!
Q: Have you gotten a blurb from Ted Nugent yet?
A: The Nuge works in mysterious ways. But we’re still trying.
Q: What are you going to do when the podcast is finished?
A: I hope to spend more time with my family, and perhaps teach a graduate course in podcasting at BYU. Also, I’ll probably do another one. And this podcast will eventually be available for purchase on CD, for persons who have lost their hands to bears, and cannot operate computers. And also for stupid people with too much money.
