i still find it ironic how inaccessible a11y is as a shortening of "accessibility"

After hearing all the covers already from the IOLTTMG podcast, it was nice to go back and listen to all of them in one sitting in the album format. Now I need to do the same with the original "All Hail West Texas" and listen to more Mountain Goats since this podcast was my first taste of their work (besides the one time one of their songs was used as the Night Vale weather which I don't even actually remember but went ahead and checked the WTNV wiki to see if it had been done)
