While recording our podcasts discussing Tim's response to Guillaume Bignon, I realized I'd disagreed with something I'd written down on our notes. Rather than cut off recording to discuss it, I decided to keep the cameras rolling so-to-speak, and both Tim and I liked the free flowing discussion that ensued. So I figured, why not make it into a bonus episode?

Since this wasn't necessarily meant to be released, keep in mind that not everything we say is our official positions on the topics at hand. We're likely both wrong at points in this episode (probably all episodes to be fair), and after closer inspection we might retract what we said. However, we thought it would be fun for you guys to see what the discussions between Tim and me are like before the podcast gets going. Enjoy!
