Weekend Editing, Day 3

Supplies wearing thin. Send help!

Just kidding. I got to go out last night for the first time in what feels like ages (er, since Monday I guess). I made it over to dinner with Bob and Steve Novella (and Steve’s lovely wife, daughter and parents), plus the New York Skeptics, including Mike Feldman, Jamy Ian Swiss, and my good pal Matt Ware. After dinner, a bunch of us went for drinks, and then it was time for Santacon! Santacon is an 18-hour long flash mob-style get-together of hundreds of people dressed like Santa. We met up with them somewhere in Brooklyn and then paraded down to the East River, where Santas of all kind hung out and swung fire poi. Then everyone paraded over to Water Street, which happens to be where we ate after this summer’s live recording of the SGU.

Here are some pics of the evening:





This morning, we got right back to work. We incorporated a lot of helpful suggestions from Richard, and have worked through the entire show perfecting everything. I also rerecorded some bits, including the ending. Now we’re working on the billboard, which is the 59-second bit that goes in front of the rest of the show, convincing people to stick around through the NPR news segment. Fun!
