It's pretty simple. Kastner i take the post number and do a lookup in the wp_postmeta table for an entry that has the meta_value of the number and meta_key of "episode" (our internal name, sneaky huh?). Then I make a call to get_permalink using the returned post_id. If all goes well, the visitor is redirected.
