    Note that the Mueller Report Congressional testimony hearing will be occurring on Wed., July 24, starting, I believe, at 8:15 a.m. EDT/7:15 a.m. CDT/5:15 a.m. PDT. At least for me right now, the TiVo Guide (updated by me just now) only shows the testimony programming on my NBC station. I assume that it is being shown on ABC and CBS as well (it was announced during the CBS Morning Show telecast this morning).

    (Feel for your friends out West--more important, send them coffee.)

    Currently showing on my local PBS station, with coverage beginning at 8:30 a.m. EDT; nothing, yet, showing for CBS or ABC (or Fox ;) ).

    Don't feel too badly for all us us here in the West. Some of us have one of the new gadget thingy call a Tivo. ;)
    We can watch the hearings without getting up in the middle of the night.

    But then you're going to miss all the live* suspense of it all!

    * I'm sure that he's a great guy and just super at a party--but the term "live" used with this witness seems to be an oxymoron. ;)

    Thankfully we've got QuickMode and it's user adjustable too.

    The other nice thing about watching it on TiVo is you get to skip the pre-game, the commercial breaks, and the half-time show (I mean really, Vanilla Ice?!?).

    It's on CSPAN3 too.. 5AM-8:30AM Pacific as the official time, I added an hour.. maybe will add more.

    might watch/skim at 1.9x quickmode.. or for once may go back to downloading, so I can listen on my phone.. (Though someone might release the whole thing as a podcast episode?)

    "That's uhh .... uhhh... [looks through pages] addressed in the second full paragraph on page 34 [long pause] and to some extent..... I think [long pause] somewhere on page 75.... if you'll give me just a moment........."

    BREAK

    "That was not addressed in the un-redacted portions of the report. Whether it was addressed in the redacted portions is something I can't really say. [Consults with lawyer] Uhhh.. [another consult] because .... My answer to that [another consult] is that the answer is either not in the report or is in the report in an area that has been redacted and I can't tell you specifically whether it's in the report in a redacted area or is not in the report at all. [consults] Uhhh, so that is my answer to that question."

    How much did the 2nd section overrun? I think I only added an hour or hour and a half.. (I added half an hour to the first one so it would hopefully at least run into the time slot of the 1st.)

    Wasn't it supposed to end at 3 pm EDT? It went to 4 (or a few minutes after?), when I had an appointment. Do they get paid by word?

    my second 4-hour block of recording (which i haven't watched, and may delete without watching) shows the hearing ended at 2:30pm central, 3:30pm eastern.

    yeah thanks, I realized both of my recordings did cover the whole thing, even though the first one went way over.. and I padded the 2nd one.

    Anybody know of them already in an audio podcast form? I searched for Mueller last night at least and couldn't find any.

    A lot of folks searched for Mueller yesterday but he was nowhere to be found. Someone finally said that he was "just out to lunch."

    ??? If I can listen to it at 2x like a podcast.. why wouldn't I?

    (Though I may just end up doing like what I USED to do before finding the new QuickMode adjustable speed.. download to VLC and play it that way.. but I can do it on my phone which will still play audio even when the phone is sleeping).

    or as a more serious answer -- because I want to be informed about the world?

    Of course, I applaud you for wanting to be informed. I really was just being tongue-in-cheek.

    But as one who watched the testimony and commentary, 15 minutes shy of 8 hours, from beginning to end, oh, the pain of it all. ;) As is typical of these things, so many words, and not coming from the person testifying. (Even using 2x fastplay in a podcast replay, this would be 4 days of listening while out hiking for exercise.)
