What's wrong with Podcast people?

This is more of a rant than a normal post, but I'd like to know why the Podcast People keeps turning my latest post into chipmunk speak? I've posted it twice and both times it downloads fine, but if you try to listen to it on their site it plays at 5 times the normal speed. So now I have to take it down, AGAIN, and repost it.
So that will cause anyone who is subscribed to it, to receive yet another copy of the same show, and it's not even one of the good shows. I'm also disappointed with the sound quality of these shows, so at some point this weekend I will make another trip to Best Buy to return a hands free mic and look for something better. If this doesn't work I will most likely be looking into getting a mixer because the constant buzzing in the background is driving me nuts.
Alright, just wanted to get that off my chest.

I am always trying to figure out why my wife even watches movies. The first thing she does when I put in a new movie is go online to find out how it ends. She reads the whole outline of the movie, which leave me to wonder why bother to watch it?
If you know not only how it ends, but everything that's going to happen then whats the point? She says she doesn't like surprises, and she'll read the end of a book first as well. I guess I'll just never understand. Then again I'm sure I'm as much of a mystery to her.

This a blog of Blobby McBlob, or what we use to affectionately call our baby (much to the dismay of my mother). However soon after this picture was passed around it was brought to my wife's attention that our child now looked more like a turtle than a blob.
You know kids, they grow up so fast. From an unidentifiable mass to a reptile in just a few weeks. Somehow though my wife finds this more offensive. I'm not sure how a turtle ranks lower than a blob, but somehow it does. Maybe it's that we did not coin this nickname.
None the less this is not the now chosen nickname for the genderless thing growing inside my wife. He/she will now be referred to as Jiggs. This is because she recently learned that this is what her grandmother referred to her as when she was in utero.
All of which is fine with me. We could call it Batman or Snuffleupagus, as long as none of these names appear on the birth certificate I don't care. My only contention is that when I hear then name Jiggs I think of an old Steven Wright joke, which I would recite here, however as previously mentioned I am lazy. That and I think I could not do the joke justice, so I will therefore post it on my podcast. Please go there and check it out, those of you who have let your student loans come due will find it especially funny.
