NOTE: I apologize for being a day late with this…we tried yet another way to record our conversation — this time using Apple’s iChat. Thankfully, I saved a copy of the GarageBand file because I had to refer to that file more than once to rebuild some recordings that I had inadvertently lost during the editing process. So between editing delays and not being around an Internet connection last night, I didn’t have much of a chance to get this online. – Brian
