'Lost': 'Orientation: Ryan Station' talks 'Recon' with special guest Noel Murray

ryan dharma station 4 leaf clover.jpgSad news, podcast fans: The Chicago Tribune's Maureen "Mo" Ryan didn't manage to mangle the English language in way that sent fits of giggles down our collective, immature spines this week. But she did deliver the "Lost" goods, alongside our guest Noel Murray. Noel writes about "Lost" over at The A.V. Club, and much like Ron Burgundy, he's kind of a big deal. People know him. Don't believe me? Read his take on "Recon." It smells of rich mahogany.

The three of us chatted for nearly an hour, spanning the course of "Recon" and beyond. Even if you're not a usual listener of the podcast, I implore you to check out the last ten minutes, in which Noel breaks down the sideways timeline in a way I've never heard and in a way I completely believe. If we hadn't been recording the conversation, I would have totally stolen his idea and pretended like it was my own. Stupid technology. But even though I'm obviously biased, I think the whole thing deserves a listen.

As always, there are a few ways to enjoy the podcast. Below the Hulu embed of "Recon" lies an MP3 player that you can use in-browser. Just below that, there's a link to download it directly to your hard drive. Adjacent to that is a link to the podcast's feed. The best way, in my humble opinion? Subscribe to the podcast. It's easy, it's free, it's tastier than squirrel baby. While you're over there, please give us a rating and/or review. We'd love to get as many people listening as possible.

Without further ado, enjoy the podcast!
