I've decided to relisten to the older episodes (mostly out of boredom at work :() but I noticed that some of the episode titles on the Download page and the main page have changed.

Episode Two: Blowing our Load is now listed as Episode Two: BOL

Episode Eighteen: Lesbians and Dongs (?) is now listed as Episode Eighteen: L & D

Now, we all know that Brotherhood Without Manners hasn't always been the most politically correct, but it has cleaned up in the last twenty or so episodes. I was just wondering why these two episodes were retroactively changed? Did you guys get in trouble or something?

Not that I'm complaining, I'm just hoping that this isn't a sign of a totally clean podcast future. We like the base humour here. :)

It just seemed unusual that it was the two episodes that had sexually explicit titles. All the other titles are in full.

I'm pretty sure it's itunes, I don't think they allow profanity, could be wrong, I think maybe only mimi knows...

Ya I abbreviated those titles recently (on the download page) for 2 reasons. One was I was trying everything possible to get the feed to work on iTunes with that whole fiasco (and it seems like it still is not working properly... :x ) and thought some dbag had reported us or something. Second, I was submitting the podcast site including download page to a lot of different places and people for potential guest hosting and interviews (some coming up this month) and thought why not abbreviate the titles (same title but abbreviated). I suspected some people who accepted the podcast then refused later probably saw the titles and had second thoughts. Once they actually guest host with us it is too late for them to refuse what they've gotten themselves into :mrgreen:

Tat is also because of amin's struggle with iTunes. It did not want to include the huge RSS-feed or something like that. So he reduced the episodes.

That makes sense. I was just wondering, as when I clicked on BOL I had no idea what it was, and it was when Mimi said 'blowing our loads' that I suddenly realised what it stood for. :oops:

If it gets you more high profile guest hosts, then it's been worth it. However, if they are prudish enough not to enjoy the base humour here...they are in for a shock. :twisted:
