    I have definitely played this since it went up and it hasn’t showed up in the downloads!

    I think “siring” is well pre-Buffy – probably Anne Rice coined it. It was in the Vampire RPGs at any rate, which started coming out in around 1990.

    Yes – I thought this too but had genuinely no idea where it could have originated, anything from Byron to Rice (Tim Rice) so didn’t say anything to avoid muddying waters further than I was already doin’.

    currently 8 download as podcast, 4 direct downloads, 3 inline plays. not quite sure why it still sez only 1 in the page here :-(

    UPDATE: it seems to have got confused with an earlier podcast that eli perhaps published on the main slug page which was played once. i’m not sure if i can disentangle the stats, but i’ll try.

    We need to get this onto the Resonance FM podcasts site – I’m one of the managers. We should also get this promo’d on Escape Pod (google for it).

    Email me or if you want to call me ask Richard, Chris or Ed at Resonance for my mobile number.
