As long time listeners may know, before I actually began posting this podcast years ago on libsyn, I recorded 20something episodes of material.  These unposted episodes were cannibalized into "lost episodes" and "lost episode segments" for the current podcast.  Otherwise, these unposted "practice" episodes were never heard... except one: the first episode. 
I actually recorded the first episode (I believe) three times, with the 3rd time being the official libsyn-posted first episode.  This 3rd recording actually used 2/3 of the recording from the 2nd try because the 2nd try had been good-- it just needed updated and polished for libsyn.
Longer story short, I had originally intended to post the podcast with Our Media/ the Internet Archive, and I had tried to upload the 2nd try of episode one.  As far as I could tell, the process was too difficult, and I didn't think it worked, so I abandoned Our Media and the 2nd try of the first episode. 
Recently, I found that the old 2nd try of my first episode did indeed post to Our Media, and it's been there all along.  Several people even downloaded it.  So, I have what amounts to an alternate take of episode one out there on the net.
If you'd like to hear the alternate take of episode one, here's the link: http://www.ourmedia.org/node/307135
If you don't care to go to the site, I plan to include this alternate take in its entirety in my -1 episode.  Normally, I wouldn't try to include previous takes of shows, but since this one is actually out there and available, I want to collect it as a rarity here. 
If you've heard the official episode one on this site, then you will recognize much of the same material, but with a different introduction segment and no edits or splices that were used to integrate the material later on.  Seeing as how the show's 1st anniversary is coming up, this find is appropriate...
