SOME USERS of 3950.net wonder why they occasionally hear two-second gaps of silence while listening to our Liberty Net and Survival Net recordings. The answer is simple: There are sometimes periods of no activity between the end of the formal net and the beginning of informal post-net conversations. The same sometimes occurs after the pre-net conversations that we sometimes include if they are interesting. So that you, the listeners, don’t have to listen to many minutes of nothing but band noise and thunderstorm static, we edit our recordings to take out these empty spots. But to make it clear that something has been edited, we insert a two-second silent pause whenever this is done. And now you know!

Genes make culture, not the reverse. (39 minutes)
