No New Show Today

Hey Lovely Listeners - 

Just in cased you missed it mentioned on the last BTS, there is no new episode today due to the Holiday.  May all our American listeners have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and may all our non-American listeners have a good, ya know... fourth week of November.

And if you're making a turkey, remember - if you ain't brining, your guest are gonna be whining.  Cause your turkey is probably gonna be mad dry.

Toodles,
Rudy and James

Have Spellbook, Will Travel - Behind the Scenes 14

Today's SUPERSIZED behind-the-scenes interview is with... RUDY BASSO ?! PLOT TWIIIIIIST.  Yes, we figured that it would probably be a smart idea to give some background info on ourselves rather than just our wonderful cast.  So take a listen and hear about quantity vs. quality writing, Rudy's accidental Lady Love, and maybe too much friend on friend back pat-tery.  Also there's a whole lotta gushing about Night's Black Agents.
