Released on 2015-04-22 under a CC-BY-SA license.

This is a response to this episode: I find it ticks all the boxes.

Recorded with a phone and spoken mainly in a different language. I did conversion to FLAC from a mono mp3 probably the same if I just uploaded the MP3 directly. No editing was done.
