Podcast 25: Our silver anniversary... sort of

Well we have come to the end of season 4 and our 25th podcast (if you count the two lost podcasts). This podcast covers episodes 25-26 of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 4. I think we must have both been tired, because there was a lot of editing out of long pauses, but it was an awesome wrap-up to the best season of TNG thus far.

Various topics discussed in this podcast include:
    Peter curses a blue streak at Joey, Joey refrains from returning fire
    Listener Jim is smart
    The ethics of romance
    New vocabulary word: naif
    Joey makes up constitutional law
    Let's be like the French
    Season 4 Wrap Up - includes new items "Hot Chick", "Best Concept or Idea", and "Trek West 5 Ultimate List of Best Episodes from Season 4"
