I have a bit of an enquiry here.  I have been pondering about when each episode of Futurama's audio commentary were recorded.

It's interesting, because some commentaries mention the dates, while others don't.  And yet, some of those which do not have dates available.

Where do these people get these dates from?  Are there more?

Also, I think we do not discuss commentaries in general too often.

I don't remember how I got this impression, but I thought the audio commentaries were recorded either in the actual booth(s) that they do the voiceover recordings OR another room in the same building.

They are.  Cohen mentions on the commentary for "Space Pilot 3000" that Nimoy recorded in the very same studio as they are recording in.  He also mentions on Into the Wild Green Yonder's commentary that Snoop Dogg was in the same room as well.

Sounds appropriate though, since they are making new episodes while recording commentaries for the old ones.  I mean, the crew are there.

D'oh!  I misread the OP and thought you were asking where they were recorded, not when.  Sorry.

I'm assuming that the audio commentaries for each volume were recorded at around approximately the same time (over the span of a few months, I'd say). For example, all the commentaries with Tress MacNeille on the season three set were recorded on the same day ("The Day the Earth Stood Stupid", in which I believe Jeff Westbrook mentions the date of the recording, "Futurestock", and "The 30% Iron Chef"). And all the season four commentaries were recorded, if I recall correctly, in late 2002 and early 2003, before much of the fourth season episodes actually aired on Fox. What I would do, if I was an even more obsessive fan than I already am, is listen to the commentaries where they specifically mention the date, then take note of who's actually at the record. It makes sense to me that they would comment on episodes pertinent to who was there that day (for example, all the commentaries for episodes written by, say, Ken Keeler in a given season--they were probably recorded on the same day, or at around the same time).

Of course, that's just a theory. And a time-consuming one, in practice.
