Originally the Midmo Club started off as a collaborative blog written using Google wave. However Lee and Dan quickly realised that they were having much more fun putting together a supplemental podcast for the site, and decided to concentrate purely on audio.
Because Lee and Dan live on opposite sides of the earth they tend to only be able to get together over Skype when one has just woken up and the other is just about to go to bed. This goes some way to explain the quality of the podcast.
