For those who are having issues with DM, I was also suggested to use a Google Drive. With the drive on my primary account almost full I had to open another Google account for the episodes. Note these are VOB files so I'm not sure how they'll work on your part with whatever system you use. Here's the link:
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... sp=sharing

And because the files are massive in size, the episodes will be up for two weeks from the day I posted them to the drive and then I'll be deleting them to make way for the next group of episodes. So in both cases, I propose you watch the episodes when you have the chance.
I saw the October 18, 1995 episode that was just uploaded does have the complete intro included.

Housekeeping handled and it's cleaned up. Thanks for the heads up and thank you jf87 for these helpful uploads.

Marcia's last name (in game 2) seems to be Yaross. [edit: this is confirmed; she's been in the J! contestants' Facebook group for several months]
What do you hear for the middle challenger's name?

I had Powell. My apologies for not being thorough with Doug's games; there were names that were ordinary enough I didn't feel like it bore spelling them out.

This is the one where only some of the clues were posted on J! Archive.

I was about to share it when I realized that you've already shared it too.

Another one I shared is from May 22, 1989.

With my tinny laptop speakers and the low quality of the audio, it's always good to have a second opinion. Thanks.

At least it's not my old ears, but I'll get back to you in another decade on that.

I added 3/14/86: https://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=7063
I knew from reading Clint's article that he had accidentally wagered to cover third-place Jay instead of second-place Thomas (thereby making his phrasing error $2,000 less costly), but I only just now noticed that because Thomas covered Jay as well, he and Clint would have tied if they had both gotten FJ right.

I submitted a correction suggestion several days ago with regard to Davina's reaction to the LANGUAGE $100 clue. The native Brooklynite seemed to take exception to how the clue and Alex portrayed the Brooklyn accent; I'm guessing she was being ironic, though, because she says, "I never talked like that in my life," with "talked" in an obvious Brooklyn accent. But it's archived as "I never spoke like that" instead. My suggestion was to have Davina saying, "I never tawked like that".

With another listen I still don't hear it the way you suggest and instead it sounds like the way I archived it. Third opinion, please.

For another listening exercise: I cannot figure out the city Charles had on DJ13 in TRAVEL & TOURISM - I hear something like "Seapol"?

Perhaps Schipol?

UNREAL ESTATE for $400 has Ox-Box instead of Ox-Bow.

Not that it's a city -- or in Germany, but yeah, it's Schiphol.

I've made a clip (via my phone's screen recording, so I couldn't do away with the letterboxed edges), so that a third opinion isn't reliant on someone else's willingness to seek out the video and timesearch for the relevant portion.

Thanks and sorry for the trouble. The clue now has a "dat" and a "tawked" while I kept the semicolon since a period between the statements usually leads to another correction suggestion.

What does Doug say before "I don't know" when responding to DJ5 (top of FIRST LINES)?

Not that I'm very good at it, I hear, "My heavens".

In game 3, Bruce's last name is Schreibfeder.
For the other challenger, I hear "a sportswriter from Beverly Hills, California, Steven Herbert".
For Bruce, I hear "a marriage and family counselor originally from Martinsville, Virginia"

Let me know if you think it should be "Steven" instead of Stephen [lectern says "Steven"], or if I've got anything else wrong.
