Here's another installment to the SAR archive - four more older shows to fill in the gaps. Episodes 14, 15, 17 and 18 are from the first season of Some Assembly Required (Episode 16 is too, with its John Oswald feature, but that was uploaded some time ago). My plan is still to upload about 4 a month until the archive is complete - apparently I was just extra motivated this week! You can find a full list of downloadable episodes HERE.

No, I haven't come out of retirement, I'm just completing the archive of old shows... There were over a dozen left to upload when we aired the final episode of Some Assembly Required in January, and I think my plan is to upload about 4 a month until the archive is complete. I just finished adding Episodes 19-22 today. You can find a full list of downloadable episodes HERE. Thanks for listening! Jon Nelson www.some-assembly-required.net
