The Final Countdown* shall be our longest, most random and (if we’re doing it right) relevant countdown yet. Which is rather a long of way saying, we’re not one hundred percent sure yet what it’s all about – just the end of result of a long and convoluted process that finally evolved into something halfway tangible this past February. Which is itself rather hard to explain, so it’s probably best to just to listen to the radio show one week at a time (most weeks anyway) for as long as it takes, and it will take a while.
