The 19th episode of Up a Paddle, as posted on August 18, 2006

This week I conclude my two part series on crazy stuff by reviewing Neon Genesis Evangelion and Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem.

Comments and Corrections
I apologize for last week’s episode.  I did an experiment with the tempo that didn’t work so well. This week I overcompensate by leaving in a lot of awkward pauses.  Look forward to next week’s apology.

- Famous Pirates – Captain Kidd

Note: Since every website seems to have a different story on Kidd, Podcast Pete pieced together what he could in a short
amount of time.  Plus, given that some of it is from Wikipedia, please take it with a grain of salt.

Email me if there’s any inaccuracies or omissions.  Yes, this biography was plundered.  YARRR!
