MISTAKE IN THE PODCAST!  My “hosts” just informed me that I mistakenly said that you can plug a microphone into the 1/8″ HEADPHONE jack.  What I MEANT to say was that you can plug your microphone into the 1/8″ MICROPHONE jack.  Sorry about the mistake.  The weird alien atmosphere in the ship is making it hard to think.
