Welcome To Mr. Logic's Podcast Riddle!
The Podcast Riddle is a URL-completion type of game, similar in concept to the Mazito series of Internet riddles that you may have already played. However, instead of solving puzzles/riddles that advance you from one web page to another, the Podcast Riddle's solutions advance you from one podcast segment to another.
Each segment of the podcast is identified by a two-digit number. Once you've figured out the answer to a given segment's puzzle/riddle, the URL for the next segment will always be of the form:
where "segnum" is the segment number that you are trying to access, and "answer" is the answer that you hope will get you to that segment.
[Note: The segment ID numbers do not necessarily occur in numerical order. So don't be alarmed when you find that those numbers jump up and down as you progress linearly through the different "levels" of the game. And you may also discover that the degree of difficulty of the puzzles/riddles is somewhat random as well. Relatively "easy" questions occur even late in the game.]
Some segments may require you to access auxiliary information (such as a JPEG image, etc.). When you are told that such an auxiliary file exists you can access it by simply changing the "mp3" extension of the current segment's URL to whatever the announcer tells you.
As usual, the rules for specifing the answer to each segment's puzzle/riddle are very simple:
For example, suppose that the question for accessing segment number 49, is:
"What is the capital city of France?"
In that case, you would specify the URL:
See? It's as easy as that!
Well... don't just sit there twiddling your thumbs! GO TO THAT LOCATION NOW!!! Mr. Logic is waiting for you!

NOTE: Just as in most of Mr. Logic's games, none of the Podcast Riddle's puzzles require the use of any third-party software (such as Photoshop, etc.) in order to be solved. Any software tools that you might need can be found in the Accessories folder on every "standard" Windows computer.
Mr. Logic's IQ Question
In the following group of images, which one does not belong in the group?
"Mr. Logic" is the producer of many online puzzle games. In the Spring of 2002, he created the concept of the "Online Riddle" when he released his Cybertrek adventure game. Since then, hundreds of other game makers have implemented his "URL-completion" method in the design of their own games (e.g., "This Is Not Pr0n", etc.).
