We love experimenting around here and examining the resulting data. After all, we are Data Driven: not just in name but also in spirit. In this webinar Andy recorded, he also streamed it live on our Facebook page. We thought it was good enough to share with our larger audience here. Let us know what you think. Both Frank and Andy have been recording/streaming their live events and we're curious to hear what you have to say about this innovation in how we podcast.
