Episode count[edit]

If we just go by the number, there are "100" episodes, but there are 5 episodes labeled "x" and 6 labeled either "a" or "b", where only 60a and 60b do not represent halves (i.e., 60 is an episode on its own, whereas 90 is represented by 90a and 90b, and likewise for 84).

Should we count these separately? The count would be 109. -- Psyced (talk) 20:49, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

I think it should be the actual count of episodes (ie audio files) that have been released. Since they never (or perhaps very rarely) say the "50th" episode, the number in episode titles is essentially arbitrary. If they were to label the next episode 1000, that's simply the number they assign it. Anything that has been released as a podcast episode should be counted individually. Other productions (kickstarter videos, etc) I don't think should be included in the count Farski (talk) 04:12, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
I agree and cannot imagine a counter argument. I'll go ahead and make the change. -- Psyced (talk) 06:09, 5 February 2014 (UTC)


Episode List Split[edit]

With more than 200 episodes to date the episode list seems far too long to be in the podcast's main article page. For those not interested in the list it makes it cumbersome to see the References and the External Link sections. I think the list should be separated into a new page as it is done for instance in The Memory Palace.
