    "What if Nigel got murdered live on mic...'

    Hi gang, we've been experiencing some technical delays in getting the latest episode of Archive Admirers out, so instead of leaving your feeds empty, we thought we would present a look behind the curtain at a recording session gone wrong. We were trying to record an episode but Nigel had to leave her hostel room and then got lost in the streets of Edinburgh. We hope you can understand, and enjoy the episode. Archive Admirers episode 30 will release May 23rd.

    - Unreality

    - Disorientation

Rae of 103 ,

More than the DVD commentary

This is the perfect show for anyone who wants to look deeper into TMA. A delightful mix of critical analysis, connections to other works, and running jokes. Each episode is broken into well-organized segments so it's easy to follow. For me, the split discussion by the hosts who are re-listening and those who are hearing TMA for the first time adds a unique perspective and sets this show apart. It's also just downright hilarious sometimes!
