Technical Difficulties

Hey, Poppers! I’m sorry to report, there were problems with the audio from last night’s podcast, so we’re going to have to re-record it today, which means it probably won’t be up until later tonight, or tomorrow morning. We apologize for the delay, but we’ll have the podcast up as soon as we can. Thanks!
