    GET LAMP isn’t available on Netflix because Netflix sucks for the filmmaker. I’m quite fine with people seeing it other ways.

      Cool, good to know it’s okay to have pointed people to the Google talk! Though I enjoyed the film so much that I linked to your site since I think people should definitely buy it, like I will. :) Thanks for listening to the episode!

    Thank you again Jen!

    Loved Get Lamp, I should have been more enthused in this episode. Also should have talked about Emily Short, who is the one of if not the main genius behind Inform 7.
