Getting Ready for the Reboot!

Howdy folks, as you’ve may have picked up on social media, primarily Facebook, I am in the (hopefully) final phases of rebooting the podcast. I’m hoping I’ll be able to release the first episode soon, but I’m still hammering out some technical issues regarding recording equipment.

Preparing for a Barter System in the Future
