Ep. 1 - Why In The World Would You Do This??

Podcast.  I'm doing one.  It's more than just free time.  There are reasons.  I hope those reasons resonate.  But even if they don't, I now have recordings of me talking!  So...  WINNING!  This episode is about that why, and what I hope to accomplish.  Hope you enjoy!
