After having receiving several bite-sized morsels of feedback from a number of listeners I have chosen to retire the original pilot episode "A Plot Full of Holes". This episode was created to test the limits of what my software/hardware was capable of, and to see what did and didn't work.
The lengthy intro section was an oversight on my part. I - wrongly - assumed that some form of scene setting was required, of which the contrary is obvious to me now.
Thank you for the feedback - please keep it coming.
