This week, I was on the road. When that happens, I get to post the episodes the night before. This means that you get it first thing if you’re on the east coast. I’ve asked myself if this is something I could do more often at home but I don’t think so. Though the minute that my kids start refusing to let me walk to school with them, I guess the episodes will be posted a solid 20 minutes earlier.
I heard from a lot of listeners this past week teling me that they love the daily podcast. And had the awesome experience of bumping into Angie and Dave *as they were listening* which was funny and cool. You might be able to tell that I enjoy doing this and so, as long as that’s the case, I’ll keep making the podcast. Plus, it gives me the excuse to stay on top of news that matters — something that I just didn’t have to do when I relied on CBC to tell me what was going on.
Anyway, if you missed any episodes from this past week, you can check them all out here.
