Great show, but one episode...

(5 stars)

I love this show, but episode #23 titled "The Date" has some serious issues. It sounds like a person fiddling with a tape recorder throughout the program. The original source material from which this recording was made appears to have been good quality, but the person making the recording from it just couldn't keep his hands off his recorder and the rattling and clumping and distorted audio (and even the person muttering to himself) keep coming back. It would be nice to have that quality recording re-recorded and re-posted here.
