Episode 28-Change Up

As I am sure everyone has noticed, the podcast is late.  Due to some time constraints I cannot continue the weekly podcasts right now.  Matt and I hope to get back to a regular schedule soon, but we do not have a date yet.  We will continue to podcast at least once a month, most likely in the middle.

This week’s episode is full length, so enjoy.  If you want to hear more and liked the weekly episodes, please leave feedback on the forums, email, or social media sites.
