We got the first half in.
But anyway: From the files of Intercall, a conference calling company, this little nugget (which we found on Quartz):
Conference call volume last week during the US-Germany game was off 11 percent. That’s “volume” as in the number of conference calls, not “volume” as in sound.
And to be honest, we were kind of lucky to get the show on the air today.
