We’re continuing our tradition of leaking out the topics on our @FOTIpod Twitter account the night before the show is posted, so you can check out all the sites and links before you hear the discussion, if being fully-informed is your thing. Regardless, you’ll find all the info you need right here in this post.

To the links! The tweets we posted last night are below — plus bonus links.
