It's happened again, I've gotten behind on my Podcast posts and rather than flooding you with copy-pastes, I figured I'd do a rollup post. It's a shame because, if I may say so, I think it's been a great few months for the show. Perhaps I'll start doing rollups every four episodes.
If you haven't listen to the show before, or perhaps listened in the past and stopped, now is a great time to get back on board. Also, please do take a moment and review the show on iTunes. The show is limited to about 30 minutes long, so it's perfect for your work commute.
