You may vote once per day during that voting period. Winners will be determined entirely by vote numbers, so every vote counts!

  • We have expended considerable amount of money to insure a fair voting process. Certain security measures are in place, should a site or individual try to circumvent the on-site voting, or use an application to automate the voting we will invalidate votes that are detected or trends show them to be fraudulent.
  • 100% e-mail verification of all votes will take place, failure to click on a vote will result in no vote being placed.
  • Non verification of votes is not contestable it is the voters responsibility to insure that the e-mail address provided is valid.
  • A verification e-mail with clickable link will be e-mailed to you so that you will have to verify the vote.
  • We are expecting extreme loads on the mail server and have put in place certain safeguards to ensure votes are not lost.

    I’m almost caught up. I started listening to the podcast about 3 years ago. I started from the beginning, Episode 1. Here it is February of 2014. I’m only seven episodes and three months behind.

    Your two guest hosts contributed to a much improved podcast. Both had sharp insight and ready wit. I hope to hear from them again.
