On the sidebar we’ve added links to some of our favorite podcasting destinations and ¬†added a link to see a random promo (thanks to Kreg Steppe for the idea).

Apparently we’re still talking in the third person, but volunteers are starting to step up, so that will change soon as well.

Cave-in rescues, planetary collisions, and other mishaps keep her new family fighting to stay alive.
