Hopefully this installment will be of surprise to you guys! I've really missed doing my show, but with the health issues I've endured, it's just been too hard to do a live show in a specific time slot each week, hence the 8 month hiatus (with the exception of occasionally being on the AngleOfAttack podcast when my health has allowed). My desire to help folks enjoy this great hobby hasn't waned a bit, so I've decided to try something a little different. My plan is to record short shows...
