Minor correction: I am not the Nathan who helped with playtesting for WarTron Boston. That was Nathan Fung. I participated in WarTron as a player. Though I did get a couple of emails in the months leading up to the recast that were clearly intended for Nathan Fung, followed up by an urgent "Oh please don't read that" from Sarah. Not wanting to be spoiled, I dutifully deleted those messages.

Oops! Thanks for the correction, Nathan C.; we've posted a correction and will issue an official retraction on next week's show. :P
