SPECIAL NOTE: New Spiel web site coming soon!
Here's a preview: http://www.thespiel.net/drupal
We have heard your cries for more interactivity, so The Spiel is moving to a content management system called Drupal. The new site will allow you to post comments directly on the site. We'll also have forums, polls, and other ways for you to help support the show. It's not quite ready for prime time yet, but very soon. We're in the process of migrating all the files and data from the current site, so stay tuned! In the mean time, let us know what you think.
Feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for listening.
