I know -- you've all been waking each day wondering when the next LoopCast was going to make an appearance.
Well, time to wake up thinking about something else. Because the new LoopCast is here.
We'll have the actual podcast up and running in a matter of days. For now, download the MP3 manually (right click that link and choose "save target as...") or stream the bad boy on your computer if you don't mind sitting in one place.
In this episode, we follow up on our recent topic of "diplomacy." We hear from Lt. Connie Leaf, a hostage negotiator with the Minneapolis Police Department, about diplomacy in her line of work.
And Sanden and I read from some of the best of the essays submitted for our diplomacy writing contest on Gather.com. We'd encourage you to read all of the entries, and respond if you're so inclined.
