Please Note: There were issues with the mic that Grover used periodically during the podcast, especially at the beginning. Adjustments to his and everyone else's mic levels were made during post production but at different points the volume might be difficult to hear. We apologize for this issue and we're working on making sure this issue does not occur again.
