    Be careful what you say about the Boner Police, because the Phone Cops are most definitely in on it.

    “dark city” is a movie that takes place in a grim future and has a character who has a postcard from a beachside place that may or may not exist. (i haven’t finished listening to the episode–perhaps this gets mentiomed but i knew i’d forget if i waited to type.)

    Here’s a low-bitrate version for people with data caps:


    Sorry it’s so late, Happy Holidays!

  4. Egbert Williams says:

    WTF is usually the same length as these and it is consistently under 30MB of data for a download. I don’t know why this one needs four or five times that. It’s a needless waste and a killer for people with data caps. We know the guys read these comments and must consistently see one very kind listener posting a link to a lower bit rate version. You’d think that might have clued them in to an easily fixable problem, so it would seem they just don’t care. Let them eat data, I guess.

      Yeah, anything over 128 kb/s for a podcast is overkill, and this show is encoded at 192 kb/s. It’s ridiculous. And I’m saying this as someone who only begrudingly listens to music that isn’t lossless.

          I don’t claim to have the ears of an audiophile, but I’ve never had any problem with the quality of Maron’s podcast or others that might average, say, 50mb/hour. To put an even finer point on the matter, you’d think there’d be a little embarrassment at seeing Vardulon regularly (and extremely kindly) picking up the slack that they could easily iron out.
