    Hi Fans of Doom! Tim is out of town for a few weeks while he explores all of Europe's mysteries.  Don't fret!  The podcast will continue each week, uninterrupted.   Like a gentlemen, he recorded a little bonus for you all from Toronto airport.  He asked me to post this for you all to enjoy last week, but as we all know, I'm the world's worst co-host.  Anyhow!  I hope you enjoy it almost as much as the corrections to the podcast below.
