No New Ep This Week :-(

Posted: November 13, 2012 by Mo in Uncategorized

The universe decided that we can’t haz podcast this week.

There were technical difficulties! Trips to the ER! (Don’t worry we’re all fine). Drama at work! Stuff and things!

Don’t worry, we’ll be back and better than ever next week. In the meantime catch up on old eps here  and JOIN US!!!
