Where have they gone?

I agree, these are excellent productions and I also wonder what happened to them. They have a Twitter account but it is no where as good as these. Please produce more EPIC podcasts.

Terrifically informative

I appreciate that you guys take time to research and share journals. You haven’t yet held one session that wasn’t engaging.

Where did you go though? It’s almost September and we have been missing you since May!
