On Hiatus

For those of you who pay attention, there was no new episode.  This is because we are doing some work on switching to a new format.  We haven’t put together a solid plan, but Chuck and I have some interesting ideas for moving forward.  For the coming weeks, we will be testing out some ideas and planning out the improved podcast.  Until we publish the new format, we will not be putting out any new episodes (unless it’s outtake episodes).  We hope you enjoy the new format and stay tuned for new episodes!
