On this special edition of Scruffy Thinking and That Post Show -- or is it That Scruffy Post Show -- we have assembled the Avengers of the Post Production world for an all out assault from another dimension: Michael Kammes, Patrick Johnson, Christopher Harrington and Zack Arnold.
Oh, and if you haven't already seen The Mac Pro Challenge, head over to MacProChallenge to see why we are having this conversation.

We also have Christopher Harrington, Patrick Johnson and Zack Arnold on the show.
And the winner is...
