I Found This Again

I lost my access/time to podcasts a few years ago, mainly because I got a different phone, and ended up working too much, and spent too much time running an alliance for a game. I’m super happy to see this is still around. Novella and gang are awesome. Thank you for keeping this running! I have a lot to catch up on!

Incredible show, I went back and listened to their entire library. So refreshing to live in a rational world for a while!
