Podcast episode guides?

Are episode guide style pages for individual episodes of the podcast allowed? Essentially I'd set them up exactly as if they were an episode of Sesame Street. (I'm going to be looking through the back episodes anyway, to find a sketch they included with Prairie Dawn and Elmo, which I can't find referenced on Muppet Wiki or archived on the Sesame Street Video Player.) -- Zanimum 20:02, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

It sounds a bit much to create a page for each podcast (especially since, unlike the episodes, they're all easily available), but if you wanted to flesh out the entries on this page, not with images and such but just listing segments, that would make sense and be a help to users. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 04:45, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

Updating role?

I updated the list a few weeks back and I've been updating it weekly ever since, Is everybody ok with me taking this role? Natonstan 19:35, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Absolutely! You can update anything you like. -- Danny@Wikia (talk) 19:43, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
