“Zero” Episodes

In comic lore, the “zero” issue is generally a backstory issue that covers information about the origin of a character. In a similar vein, we will from time-to-time, add "zero episodes" as we add new shows to the network. It gives the listener the host and the guest's genesis and thought process for the show to be brought to the network. It will also provide the listener with the objective of the show, how long it will run, and what is hoped to be accomplished during its run.

Below are the zero episodes we currently have on the network.
