Thank you for your patience.
I ultimately started over after a comment on a Facebook post that put the length of the interview into question. There wasn’t any intention to repeat parts exactly (copy/paste), and I wasn’t keeping missing parts from fans as it was assumed. The call may have been four hours altogether due to setup, tech issues, catching-up chat on both ends and breaks, however there are only three hours and 21 minutes (give or take a few seconds) recorded between two files.
Now someone may ask the question, why is the audio two hours and 55 minutes long? That missing Third Earth section only added close to six minutes; the rest of it was a ton of false starts (including the intro and sign off), sighs, distracting inhales and exhales, stops to ask about breaks, um’s, uh’s, likes, so's, you know’s, curse words, awkward silence, explanation redundancies, and just plain forgetting details. Seeing how this was Dan’s stage and you want to listen more to him than anyone else, I took out all that mentioned above from those involved to make it easier for you to listen; along with most of any audio I fumbled through that would take away your enjoyment of the storytelling experience. The edits were due to my being very much aware that a file uploaded to the net is on there forever, and I once wanted to put the best out there for all involved. This second version has all Dan recorded start to end of the details you want, with only the bookends music added. I do draw the line on my own audio, with my largest fumbles still missing from the second version, and post audio re-dos that weren't needed anymore are gone. So quick points: um's, uh's and etc. from everybody involved and any flubs on my part took up a lot of what was missing, any "repeats" you now hear are as they were recorded by Dan, and I have the right to control my own major audio flubs and they still won't be in there.
That said, you can enjoy the supplemental information from Dan Norton whether you heard and read any other interviews of his on this subject before this.
I don't care.
