Will the podcast feature just Matt and Jess or will the irrepressible Cortex be answering questions too?

jonmc, you shouldn't be answering questions about de fokking unless you have some visual aids... (oddly, SFW)

If you have questions for me I will also answer them in an amusing fashion. The difference being that you won't be able to hear me do it. Unless you've got really good hearing.

I'm too shy about my radio voice to call, but I do have a question! Maybe you'd consider addressing it, even though I'm not calling? Here it is:

I've asked a number of anonymous askme questions in my, oh, year here, and I've been wondering what it's like for you two to have such intimate information about your online acquaintances. Is it awkward corresponding with people after you learn about their secret fetishes, romantic woes, drug problems, etc? Are there particular ethical questions you consider about these anonymous questions (I'm thinking of how certain people, teachers etc, are legally obligated to report when someone in their care is contemplating harming someone else or themselves)? I'm betting that neither of you would have foreseen this particular responsibility when you each started working on this project. Comments?

Thanks!

I'm still wondering what time it is.

serazin: Perhaps you should consider hiring a voiceover artist to phone your question in for you! Or read this guy's book, get your voice chops together and phone it in yourself!

Serazin, I just called and asked almost the same thing.

"Hi, this is dersins from metafilter, and I actual;y have two questions. 1. Why is a mouse when it spins? [NOT NOT DADAIST] 2. Why is jonson so awesome? Perhaps you can interview him and ask him? [NOT SUCKUPIST]

What does it mean to live a good life?

What does it mean to live a good life?

Easy one: to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

That's one less that M&J will need to tackle.

You've got to start posting these things before we east-coasters go to bed.

Apparently the voicemail limits messages to about two minutes. I guess that's okay, considering that the admins will probably only listen to the first few seconds of the oversize one I just left… looks around sheepishly… calls again to apologize…

Yeah, what is The Pink Superhero thinking?

Up to the slip comes a pirate ship
To take us for a ride
And the pony mans the captain
And the children are the crew
And we go in search of treasure
And laugh the whole night through.

I tried to think of a question, but again, I could not think of one. Which clearly means I already know everything.

I'm not going to ask any questions. I'm just going to inhale a bunch of helium and read random quotes from ParisParamus.

I wish they'd limit it to one minute. People, ask a question, don't make a fucking speech. And we all know you love Matt and Jess and the site, so you can skip that part.
