A Frustrating Day for the Fledgling BPP...

Some days you eat the bear, some days the bear eats you. Some days you're the bat, some days you're the ball. Today, a bear kicked our asses with a bat. (And by asses, I mean the pet donkeys we keep in the board room.)

It went off the rails pretty fast, starting 0.1 seconds into the show, when we failed to hit RECORD. We did manage to catch that error quickly, so we're going to post chunks of the first hour in individual segments, then we'll post the second hour in its entirety. In spite of the truly rough nature of today's Rough Cuts, we think you'll still find plenty of gems to be mined. Keep checking back, we'll be posting audio and video throughout the afternoon...

Personally, I liked the break up as a downloaded podcast. On the radio, the 2 hour version will work better. Though, full disclosure, I have the iPod run the continuously. But I did like the feeling of having control over what stories I would listen to.
