Dateline 12/16/2015

Sorry it’s late folks. I had some last minute editing issues. There’s some stuff that still isn’t fixed, such as the loudness issue between Joe and I, as well as the lack of an audio outro. This is our last post before Christmas, so Joe, Mark, and I wish everyone the happiest of holidays! I hope your Christmas is Merry and your New Years bright.


Due to the business this time of year we were unable to get with our interviewee. We’ll speak with them in 2016!
