APOLOGY: Unless you were among the 80 or so quiet and judgmental people who attended the live recording of Podcast 123 - numerically historic - you will not be able to experience it in your ears. Because GarageBand broke.
Naturally, as those who were there will confirm (it's a bit like being at the Sex Pistols gig at the Manchester Free Trade Hall), it was the best podcast ever recorded, and at no point did we dither or alienate the audience or make idiots of ourselves by talking about Wet Ones, the 7/7 atrocity, the Lockerbie bomber, pork scratchings, Dundee Paratrooper the cloned bull, the previous night's Masterchef, Big John Little John, bucket shops and the fact that one of our audience had done a wee in the aisle. It was historic.
And to top it all, the power went off in the entire building five minutes before the end, plunging the show into darkness, at which point we all sang You've Got The Power. It was like the Blitz. You really should have been there. If you weren't, we offer the first 2 minutes and 46 seconds from the dressing room, and a short statement recorded back at the flat. And we will never record a podcast on Andrew's laptop ever again without having Richard's on as well.
