    How can we treat your podcast as serious when everyone knows PAA and Douglas Smythe sponsor your channel?

    What a joke!

    1. Hi Rich and thanks for the comment.

      My invitation for sponsorship is open to all artisians/vendors alike. PAA has generously donated some aftershaves to be given a way in our weekly trivia question. I felt this would be a great way for our listeners to win some free stuff and to create some excitement for the cast.

      Contact me anytime at [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns. I have offered you my information in the past but have yet to see an email.

      Thanks again.
