Episode 48 will be delayed

Hey fans, we had a great time at AnimeNext 2012!  Unfortunately, our podcast editor Dr. A/V-sian had to work all weekend when he wasn't busy filming us performing or doing panels, so this week's episode will be delayed.  We promise to beat him silly when he's finally awake enough to feel it.  We're really sorry - sumimasen!
