Tonight, in Atlanta, GA, the Parsec Awards declared Stranger Things the winner of the 2009 Parsec Award for Best Video Podcast.

We've made some changes in the feed to correct it, and if it isn't right by tomorrow, we'll re-post the video into the feed properly.
Video update coming soon, as soon as I unleash the hounds of post production on the new episode!
Executive producer/Creator, Stranger Things
As you know, this episode was penned by Matt Wallace (check out his anthology, The Next Fix, soon to be in bookstores. Consider it a controlled substance.) Matt Wallace is one of the few authors I would trust with my worlds, and he has done us proud.
