Episode 07 – From Small Beginnings

Holy crap, it’s been over a month since the last episode! Sorry to keep you waiting, but the holidays are indeed a busy time. That’s why we lined up THREE, count ’em, THREE episodes for you for the rest of the month, starting with episode 07! This three-parter will pretty much be our group’s origin story. Now, I must warn you that we did get a little…tipsy during this recording, which would explain some of the background noise. Okay, a lot of the background noise. Hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane!
