A Bag of Intros
Occasionally, we'll record an episode that doesn't get released. (usually a result of recording loss or a dodgy connection, the usual sexy stuff.) But we'll have recorded the intro before we've realised we have to pull the plug on the episode. These intros still exist, unheard in the chill, silent void between recording and release. So this week, as Colin and Cillian were off watching Histrionix live in Smock Alley, they have compiled a collection of untethered intros.
