No doubt it is late, but it must not be later - yet.

Ken is still working on it, the studio adds a lot to the show but managed to make putting together the video a little more difficult that usual

Lies, he just dose not wane make one!

You guys should seriously be able to get this workflow figured out. I could turn this around in about 4 hours, cutting and rendering. It's been over a week. Are you guys editing on boxes from the 90s or something?

The Max Headroom version of PC Perspective Podcast has arrived.

Ryan has infinitely better video, much more professional ! Hope the rest of the podcasts look this well. Main improvement is less lag.

Good job !

Ryan's video quality was better because he was located on set at the brick twit house instead of coming over Skype from Kentucky.
