Welcome to this new page, which is for the for the foreseeable future replacing the "Topic Announcement" blog posts which I'm burnt out on writing. Release dates for PEL episodes refer to the release of the first half of the conversation. If you're a PEL Citizen, you'll get the whole thing on that date; if not, you'll have to wait another week for the second half.
