Edit titles for better sorting

Podcast titles edit: remove "Tech Nation," the word "Episode," and air date from titles so each is just ep number and title/guest. Use subtitle line for airdate.

A Review of "TechNation Radio Podcast"

I had heard what I had believed to had been certain parts of what I had believed to had been this "TechNation Radio Podcast" involving what could be perceived as ones having had vulgar or profane language being censored or obscured and one having had language that could offend at least one living being of a certain name due to its context of that name and at least one living being not of that name who might or might not had known at least one living being of that name.

So excited to finally find the Tech Nation podcast!!!

Am ECSTATIC to find the podcast version of Tech Nation. Big thanks to whatever donations made this finally possible. I definitely searched for a podcast in the past, after finding myself trapped in the car, listening to a radio broadcast, knowing that I would never be able to listen again anywhere else, because no podcast or transcript existed. And I unfortunately couldn’t always stay and listen. So I guess it has been a while since I looked to see if there was a podcast and imagine my joy when I found it finally! Planning to listen to every back podcast!
