SFEley is currently on break and when he comes back he'll have the opportunity choose the day that he posts the show. if you're usually up to date on the podcast and your week is spent in anticipation is there a day that you prefer for release?

of course, this is just to show Steve if there's any preference (and to try to fill the escape pod shaped hole in my week =P). all things being equal he might take it under consideration.

with podcastle on wednesday (maybe late tuesday, depending on timezones) and pseudopod on fridays i like escape pod dropping in on thurday to fill out the end of the week. it's usually a bit rushed at the beginning and it's nice to have podcasts to look forward to before the weekend.

I don't care, personally. I'm used to it being on Thursdays so keeping it the same is fine and dandy with me.

Don't care, really.

Frankly, being in England means that they are always released in the middle of the night or when I'm out of the house, so I'll pick them up the next day anyway.

I don't care, as I find that I listen to them when I have time, not when they come out.

I'm another firm member of the "don't care" camp. 

A regular release day is nice, because the podcast tends to carve out "its" space in my week, but even that is not a big deal.

alright, alright.

next time that i set up a poll that asks 'if you have an opinion, what is it?' there will be the option 'i have no opinion but still want my voice heard.'

This is not such a poll.  The question is "What day do you like Escape Pod to become available?"  With the question stated thusly, a "don't care" or "No preference" option should be included along with the seven days of the week.

it's that way if you ignore the post explaining the poll and just look at the shortened question.
which is fair.

I generally listen to an entire audiobook, and then binge on several episodes (from one podcast or another) one after the other.
So, I abstained from voting.

I feed The Pod.

I would pick Sunday. That way, you can enjoy the drive to work with a fresh, hot cup of Escape Pod.

I didn't vote because it doesn't really matter to me.  I can't keep up with listening to the podcasts I subscribe to anyway.
