    For the contest, can we enter multiple times?

      Dear Jeebus! Why would you pretend you are Matthew more than once!? No. You can only enter once.

    What is the ticking noise going on behind Matthew, I hear it most during his review.

      Matthew has a really bad habit of playing MineSweeper all the time. If you listen to past episodes (all that he appears in) you’ll hear him doing the same thing. Minesweeper is a recreational pastime, but with Matthew it appears to be a way of life. If you, or someone you know has a chronic MineSweeper addiction, please get help right away.

        I remember reading at one point JK Rowling has the same problem. Delayed the Harry Potter books for months while she tried to beat her best time. In fact that is the real reason she hasn’t published any books since just can’t drag herself away from the minesweeper.

    Milk and Cheese is certainly meant to be ingested in small doses. I love M&C as well as Dorkin’s stuff from DORK, like Murder Family. I can’t imagine reading 240 pages in one or even two or three sittings, though. I recently picked up the Too Much Coffee Man Omnibus which cracks the 550 page mark, and it is similar to M&C that it is very short intense stories. Maybe it had something to do with the 90s…

    Cool episode, you know what’s sad? I think Matthew’s “butchering” of my name may be the best pronunciation I have ever heard from an Anglophone, including my coworkers of 3 years…

    Also, “Trials and Tribble-ations”, that is all ;-)

    My favourite moment from the podcast was when Stephen was stumped about what to do with the third set of figurines. Matthew has one, he has one… but what to with the third one? Gee, that’s a predicament. it’s not like there’s a third member of the MSP team or anything. Does Rodrigo get one? Naw, let’s give it away! We’ll just give Rodrigo a nice tie… or maybe some socks.

    (Note: my brain totally realized it was a set up for the contest, but the rest of me was still amused.)

      Rodrigo said he didn’t want/need the set, so there :P

        So he’s not getting a nice tie? or even socks? Poor Rodrigo.
