Podcast 103: "What the H--- was THAT?! We're under attack!"

 At one point during this podcast, while we were discussing energy weapons, Pete became so excited he began to shout and pound the table - it was so loud, the microphone literally could not handle the input at one point and it completely shut off. You'll know the moment when you hear's really too bad, the conversation had me laughing so hard I thought I would pass out. You'll never know what you missed! Brought to you from the "TW5 Studio", we cover episodes 1-4 of Babylon 5, Season 2.

Various topics discussed in this podcast include:
    Listener Fishhead points out the surprising number of appearances of the number "5", and sneaks in a semi-Culture Corner (good for you, Fishhead!)
    Facebook Find of the Week: Listener Spongebob - Meet Me Half Way video
    Joey's Culture Corner: A Wrinkle in Time
    No more honking...introducing the "foreshadowing bell"
    Lincoln's Annual Message to Congress
    Next show candidate for Trek West 5: Little House on the Prairie
    See, it's not just me - Pete gets giddy, too!
    The Second Coming, by W. B. Yeats
    Familiarity breeds blindness in the face of the taboo
    Lots of fore-"Shadow"-ing
    Purple vs. Green or Technomages - no middle ground?
    Energy weapons in outer space
    Music by Shayna Zaid
