    Dear Jack,

    what a brilliant installment in an already wonderful podcast series!

    “Beastie, beastie, beastie…” – I almost wet myself when I listened to this scene.
    Your warped sense of humor is priceless!
    Perhaps the elimination of “undesired entities” can be done by means of pans, too?
    So, bring the “pan” back, please 😉

  2. Thanks, Peter! That scene did turn out well, didn’t it?

    Captain Socrates returns in the next installment. I think it’s safe to anticipate a note or two 🙂

      > That scene did turn out well, didn’t it?
      I loooove this scene! Every time I think about it I have to laugh out loud. Yes, indeed, “an ambassador`s work is never done!” 🙂

      > I think it’s safe to anticipate a note or two.
      Excellent news. So, it`s “pan time” again: Let`s pan!

      BTW, didn`t you want to do shorter installments being released more frequently? A 2-3 week release cycle would be great because having to wait six weeks between the installments is a bit long for getting into “FIS mode” again.

  3. Ah, yes, I did. That didn’t work out, which is why I’m moving in the direction of stand-alone features (most of the way there now, I think). As always, the writer self is at the mercy of his muses. Those gosh darn writers. Fiends, all of them. They all deserve a thorough panning. 🙂

    So, every episode would stand for itself? And the intros could work as a kind of “associative bridge”? Interesting idea – on verra.

    “They all deserve a thorough panning.”
    But who pans the “pan man”?
    Well, self-referentiality leads to paradoxa, but it can hurt, too. It seems to me that pans are the “ultimate” paradox artefacts if they are used in the right, i.e. self-referential, way. And, who knows, “self- and other-referential panning” might even foster creativity.

    So, “let`s pan every one!” 😉
