  1. Great podcast Ron. I wonder if we both had towels around our necks at the exact same moments. How did you attach yours? I think we (my brother and I) both knotted them, and tried diaper pins. Gad, remember those? Diaper pins?

    We would watch Batman and then run outside and replay the episode. Taking turns to be Batman and Robin. I think the neighbor kids had to be Joker or Penguin. We were NEVER the villian. Sometimes I was Catwoman. Even as a kid I realized how odd THAT character was…good? bad? what was that? Way too grownup for me to understand.

    Thanks for the wonderful podcast and all the sound effects.
