I knew I was in trouble before we even started recording. George was on a tear and dragging the rest of us in his wake as soon as he connected for the call. But after we got through discussions about rapist ducks, the SEO value of Paris Hilton doing obscene things to plastic ducks, and a quick search of Wikipedia on the subject of duck mating habits, we managed to actually record a show.
Luckily the show part channeled all that duck-inspired sexual tension into some engaging discussion you won't want to miss. So download it now. Before the ducks arrive. And have their way with you.
And as usual, a reminder to add me on your Twitter profile for all the latest BeanCast news, as well as my random witticisms. I'm TheBeanCast. As always, thanks for listening and please add a positive review to iTunes if you like the show.
