Firstly, I apologize for the surprise distortion. I did what I could, and when I recorded the new intro, I completely forgot about it!

Happy National Cookie Day! I’m eating a cookie as I post this!

The Uncommon Geek and Blog Monkey Neo sit down with their friend Matt to talk about Battlestar Galactica, both old and new… but mostly new.
