Episode 17 - Technical Difficulties

Well this is awkward... We recorded an episode this week, but something went wonky with the audio and we didn't have time to re-record a full episode. So here's an apology. Kids these days like their entertainment fast (6 second max on Vine? How did that catch on?), so let's just write this one up as "perfect for the younger crowd" shall we?

 

Talking Points:

  • We goofed! (00:00)

 

As always, thank you Bensound.com, Laura Cooper, and you the listener. Please subscribe, rate, and tell friend. See you next week!

Again, sorry about all this.
