Thanks again to Michael Barnes of the Melting Pot for letting me sub his show this past Sunday. It’s been at least six years that I had to host a show on my own and let’s just say it’s not like learning to ride a bicycle again. More like trying to remember how to cook a recipe!

The total show was 2 hours but a recording snafu killed the last 40 minutes so here’s the first 80 minutes of the show, including mic breaks.
