Almost There

First let me thank John Holl and all the other contributors for pod casts as this has been one of the many things that has helped me to maintain a level of sanity during this difficult time we’re all going thru.
Then I’d like to express how much I liked hearing the most recent podcast (episode 83 from Zillcoah Brewing in Asheville NC). This episode was fantastic hearing from a small brewing in one of the largest beer towns/cities in the country and how they worked thru this weird time and keep doing what they do best. It was also great to hear the wind blowing thru the mic as it made Zillcoah sound even more like a place I can wait to visit on my next trip to Asheville.
Keep up the good work John and all those you work with (even Mr. Carton who seems to know everything about everything).
