    Well, we’ve got a ghost in the office. Calm down – it’s not as cool as it sounds. It’s not a spooky ghost. There’s no long-forgotten murder mystery to solve so the ghost can move on. It’s not mischievous like a Harry Potter ghost, and it doesn’t watch over us like Ghost Dad. It’s not even friendly like that twerp Casper.

    We knew something was up when office supplies started mysteriously disappearing. And we’re pretty sure the ghost makes an absolute mess in the bathroom. There’s water everywhere – on the floor, all over the sink, on the walls. What’s up with that? And! It eats other people’s lunches out of the fridge. Their special homemade lunches. It never empties its trash, and now we have swarms of fruit flies. And half the time, it’s just sitting there on Facebook, doing absolutely nothing helpful at all.

    So on Halloween night, we’re going to exercise the demon by blasting it with some V1 Podcasts. We’re hoping the top-notch local audio will inspire it to do something worthwhile – just like the fine local folks who make the podcasts for Or maybe the roar of four different podcasts (chockfull of music, commentary, and conversation) played simultaneously will annoy it into moving on to someone else’s office, where it CANNOT use us as a reference.

    Happy Halloween!
