Audio production from Todd Hulslander, with a lot of help this time actually from Dacia Clay.

Music used in this episode includes:

– Mendelssohn: Incidental Music to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” Op. 61 (We used CBS/Sony 37760 with Szell and the Cleveland Orchestra, which is not available – we think – for MP3 download, but here is another recording which is perfectly lovely.)
